The very cold weather is expected to continue today, with a wide range of weather possibilities for your Wednesday. We could see an additional snow shower this morning (light accumulation), clouds, and eventually some sunshine breaking through in some areas.
A Winter Weather Advisory is in effect for Claiborne Parish, and Columbia, Hemsptead, and Nevada counties in Arkansas. Sleet, snow, and a cold rain will be possible in these areas.
Most of us are near freezing to begin the day with temperatures in the low and mid 30s. The good news is the wind has let up, and light winds aren’t adding as much of a wind chill compared to yesterday morning. An area of low pressure continues to spin overhead and that may provide enough lift to create a few pockets of precipitation again this morning, which combined with the cold temperatures could fall as snow and sleet mainly in southern Arkansas. Be careful as we may see some ice on bridges and overpasses.
The low will carry what is left of the rain/snow/clouds to our east as we move into the afternoon, so we may see overcast skies early, then mostly cloudy with some some sun breaking through this afternoon. Either way, another very cold afternoon is on the way with highs in the low 40s.
Tomorrow skies will turn mostly sunny and highs will jump into the upper 40s and low 50s, which is still very cold for mid-November, but seems pleasant after a few days in the 30s and low 40s. A returning south wind and sunshine should help us break 60 degrees Friday and Saturday.
Another cold front will move in late in the weekend. Due to the dry air ahead of the front any rainfall accumulations will be light with highs falling into the low 60s Sunday.
The Red River continues to run high, but no flooding is expected. You can see current levels — here.
