Dec. 3: What you need to know

Bryan's Thursday, Dec. 3, forecast

JONESBORO, Ark. (KAIT) - Good morning! It is Thursday, Dec. 3, plan your day on Good Morning Region 8.

Weather Headlines

An approaching upper disturbance touched off several showers early this morning.

For our Ozark counties, it will be cold enough at times to support sleet or snow mixing with the rain. No accumulation is expected.

For the rest of us, it’ll be a messy morning and midday commute with temperatures struggling to make it into the low 40s.

About a quarter-inch of rain should fall before drier conditions return tonight into Friday.

We can’t rule out a few snow flurries as this upper system passes overhead tomorrow.

Meteorologist Bryan McCormick has your forecast coming up at the top of the hour.
