Winter storm warning revised for Arkansas
Just yesterday, the National Weather Service issued a winter storm warning for Arkansas.
As anyone who has lived in this state might tell you, if you don’t like the weather in Arkansas just wait five minutes and it will change. Apparently, the same is true for weather forecasts.
Yes, we still have a winter weather forecast in effect, but it seems the storm to the southwest isn’t moving through the state as quickly as expected. The National Weather Service says we still have snow on the way, but it will arrive later than expected.
The original forecast called for winter weather to hit early Sunday. The revised forecast predicts freezing precipitation will hit around noon in the southern parts of the state, around 3 p.m. in central Arkansas and about 6 p.m. further north. And, yes, the snow is expectred to keep on falling through Monday morning.
That’s the latest but, of course, the forecast could change again. Click here for the latest forecast from the National Weather Service and here for current temperatures and what-not. To see the predicted precipitation amounts, just have a look at the below graphic.
If the forecast is updated again, we’ll be sure to have it. And, yes, we’ll have some entertainment ready in case people are snowed in and need something to do — an extra old time radio episode or two. Who the heck would want to miss that?
