Winter Weather Outlook for Thursday, November 13, 2014

For Saturday afternoon: There will probably be a mixture of light rain and snow in northwest Arkansas. It’s a reasonable possibility that this could be mainly light snow at the higher elevations.

For Saturday night: A mixture of light rain and snow will spread into north central and northeast sections, while gradually diminishing in the northwest. As the night goes along, the precipitation type will probably trend more toward light snow.

For Sunday: A mixture of light rain and snow across the north.

From Sunday afternoon into Sunday night: A mixture of light rain and snow will gradually turn to mostly snow across the northwest part of the state first and then across much of the northern half of the state as the night goes along. Some small accumulations could occur. The southern half of the state will probably see a mixture of light rain, sleet, and some snow.

Most if not all of the wintry precipitation should exit Arkansas by sunrise on Monday.

Keep up with changing winter weather conditions here.
