Your Weather Briefing for Northwest Arkansas
Weather Briefing Last Update: 4:30 a.m. cst Wednesday, December 11, 2019

The next several days will be quiet across Northwest Arkansas with temperatures near 50 Thursday and warming a tad more for Friday. An upper level disturbance will quickly move through the area on Thursday bringing some cloudiness. No precipitation is expected due to the lack of moisture for this system to work with. A cold front approaches from the north late Friday night into early Saturday morning. The anticipated northerly to northeasterly wind through the day will allow for temperatures to be cooler Saturday.

Attention then turns to late this weekend and into early next week. The forecast for Sunday into Monday still has many uncertainties in terms of the overall setup which is resulting in low forecast confidence past Saturday. Low pressure will form along a boundary to the south of our area, with an upper level storm system passing through the Rockies and into the plains. This will allow southwesterly upper flow to develop, lifting moister up and over the surface boundary, and with a supply of mid and upper level moisture, precipitation will become possible over Northwest Arkansas. We could possibly see a mixed bag of wintry precipitation starting as early as Sunday morning across portions of Northwest Arkansas, then continue Sunday night and into Monday as the storm system moves through our area. Again confidence remains very low on any potential impacts.
