Precipitation chances will return to northwest Arkansas this afternoon and these rain chances will persist through about mid-day Saturday. By early Saturday, an approaching storm system will interact with a warmer and more unstable airmass to produce thunderstorms across northwest Arkansas Saturday morning. There is also a threat for severe weather Saturday morning.

Otherwise, a dryline will surge quickly east behind the thunderstorms Saturday morning, with most of this activity exiting to the east of our area by early afternoon. Gusty west to southwesterly winds will become a concern Saturday afternoon, with winds forecast to gusts over 35 mph across much of northwest Arkansas.

The weather is expected to be quiet and seasonably mild from late this weekend into early next week. Forecast models are then showing an unsettled weather pattern developing that will be favorable for an Arctic surge or two toward the end of next week.

...This Day in Weather History...

In 1966, 3 to 5 inches of snow fell across northwest Arkansas.
