Cold With No Snow is Like Ice with No Cream
Break out the chapstick! Cold and dry arctic air will settle into the state late today through much of the week. Since last week, we at Channel 7 have not bit on the accumulating snow idea. It's NOT how we get snow of any significance in Arkansas. I'm daring Mother Nature to prove me wrong right now!
What about southeast Arkansas, I have doubts for you too. Sorry. I think it's possible for flakes to fly and MAYBE a light coating of snow for far southeast Arkansas. I just can't see it being much more than that.
Any water on the streets from rain or run-off will freeze tonight and the bigger weather story will be cold air over the next several day.
By late Tuesday into early Wednesday, I think a few areas of light snow or flurries will be possible across northern Arkansas. This was something talked about here 1st earlier last week. My saying, "northwest flow, lookout below". The air mass will be from the arctic. Any disturbance in that northwesterly flow will squeeze out available moisture PLUS lift from the mountains north could produce light snow. The challenge is overcoming the extreme dry air in place. As for accumulation, I wouldn't bet on that, but a few flakes could fly. Again, cold is the bigger story.
