Cold, Wintery Mix Expected by Mid-Week in Parts of Region 8

NOVEMBER 28, 2006 - Posted at 3:13 p.m. CST

 

LITTLE ROCK, AR - The National Weather Service has issued a special weather statement that advises that most of Arkansas is to experience cold temperatures and wintery precipitation starting Wednesday night.

The weather service says the unseasonably warm temperatures over the state right now will abruptly shift come Wednesday.

Rain and some severe thunderstorms are forecast for Wednesday.  Behind those storms will be sleet and snow and possibly freezing rain.

Northwest Arkansas will get the first taste of the wintery weather.

K8 Chief Meteorologist Ryan Vaughan says the northwest counties of the viewing area are the most likely parts of Region 8 to be affected.

The weather service says it is too early to predict which types of precipitation will fall and where.  But forecasters note that ground temperatures are unseasonably warm, which could limit accumalation to bridges and overpasses.
