“If we don’t see some wintry precipitation in Arkansas this weekend, I am going to be mighty surprised”, says John Robinson of the National Weather Service office in Little Rock.
Robinson predicts, beginning on Saturday, there will be a chance of light rain or snow, primarily in northern and western Arkansas. The most likely time is early in the day, with most precipitation becoming rain later in the day.
From late Saturday night through Sunday morning, the will be a chance of light snow over the northern third of the state, and a possibility for some pockets of light sleet or freezing rain in the central third.
Best chances for wintry precipitation will occur from late Sunday afternoon through Sunday night. This should be mainly in the form of light snow over the northern third of Arkansas. The central third could see a mixture of light rain, freezing rain, sleet, and snow, becoming mainly light snow as the night progresses. The southern third should have a mixture of light rain, freezing rain, sleet, and snow. Especially over the northern half of Arkansas, there could be some small accumulations of snow, especially at the higher elevations.
