Rainfall amounts through the remainder of January appear on the light side over southern Arkansas(a tenth of an inch or less) to dry over northern Arkansas. Wet weather is set to return across all of Arkansas once the calendar flips to February.
We're expecting nice weather this weekend, but we know Arkansas weather enthusiasts want to know: IS IT GONNA SNOW? There is a large upper level storm system approaching mid to late in the upcoming week; however, there's SO MUCH that can change before it arrives, confidence in wintry precipitation is low at this time. As the storm system gets closer to us, the less the system ca change, and the more confident our forecast will be. We have been, and will continue to closely watch this storm system expected to impact Arkansas mid to late in the upcoming week. The most important think to keep in mind is that model output changes drastically based on small changes in input. DO NOT TRUST any single model run. Please get your weather information from reliable sources so that you can make the best decisions possible anytime a large storm system is approaching your area. Aside from forecast directly from us, your local National Weather Service office, out local television station meteorologists )e.g. Channels 4,7,11, and 16), radio stations, emergency managers, universities, and licensed private companies, all provide excellent, science based forecasts. In fact, we all work together in the background to get the best forecast out there for all of you. We don't post raw model data because it's almost always wrong, and we don't want to over hype or underestimate any upcoming weather event. We will let you know as soon as we know, just please be wary of unsourced maps/graphs/forecasts for winter weather in the upcoming week as many people will post extreme forecasts to attract attention. We hope you have a great weekend, and week ahead, and we will keep a close eye on the big weather system approaching the state mid to late in the week ahead.
On this day in Arkansas weather history, heavy snow was falling across the state, with around 7 to 9 inches of snow in the Little Rock metro, and as much as 16 inches officially reported across the southwestern portion of the state.
