Today – Rain – High 66
Noon 63 . 3pm 64 . 6pm 60 . 9pm 56
A sheild of light to moderate rain this morning turning into on-off scattered showers after noon today (HRRR model below). The rain is here and not moving completely out until after midnight. Keep the rain gear handy.
For the football games tonight, don’t forget the towel to wipe down your seat in the bleachers.
HRRR model Friday 11 am – 8 pm:
Winds will really be increasing after midnight from the north at 10 – 15 mph sustained with gusts as high as 20 mph as the cold front responsible for the rain pushes through.
Saturday – Windy; Chilly; Clearing – Morning Low 46, High 53
6am 47 . 9am 48 . Noon 51 . 3pm 53 . 6pm 45 . 9pm 41
There could be a few leftover showers early, but nothing to ruin a day or cause a change of plans. The sun will return before days end.
The cold front will be really filtering in much cooler direr air.
Winds will be 15 – 20 mph sustained out of the north. Wind chills will be into the 40s all day.
Game Day in Arkansas
Those of you headed to Little Rock Saturday to watch the MSU bulldogs take on the Arkansas Razorbacks, you will need to layer up as we start the day. The sun will finally make a return to Little Rock, but at the price of it being very cold, and windy. Windchills into the 30s and low 40s are expected along with a high of 47. 4th quarter is not looking any warmer as skies will be clear, and the winds will just as strong.
Sunday – Cold Air Full Force; Clear; Windy – Morning Low 29, High 45
6am 29 . 9am 35 . Noon 42 . 3pm 45 . 6pm 38 . 9pm 35
Don’t let the sunny clear skies fool you. It will not feel as nice as it looks outside the window.
C-O-L-D! Wind chills could be as low as 20 degrees Sunday morning! Bundle up… You will thank me later.
With winds still fairly strong at 10 – 15 mph sustained the wind chills or feel like temperature won’t even get into the 40s. Burrrrr
Early Next Week
Things get very interesting. There is a possibility of snow (No accumulation) as this cold air mass already in place and moisture from the gulf rides over that cold air mass. Regardless of any snow flakes falling or any winter precipitation there could be a lot of rain.
We are still many days out and its way to early to know for certain how much rain we will get and how long it will last. It is looking like Wednesday the busiest travel day across the county will be a soaker across much of The South. Areas further north of us have a better chance of seeing winter precipitation on Wednesday.
So again, this snow potential is nothing to worry about and there’s no need to panic or prepare for anything….just be abreast of any weather changes through the weekend!
