JONESBORO, Ark. (KAIT) - We’re helping you plan your day on Good Morning Region 8.

Weather Headlines

Waking up to a few more clouds this morning and temperatures that are typical for mid-to-late January. We should see some sunshine today, but temperatures should top out in the upper-40s to near 50°.

Rain returns Saturday night into Sunday, but it doesn’t look like a lot of rain will fall. Generally, .10-.25″ of rain will fall. We will be left with some drizzle and light rain on Sunday afternoon. With the cooler temperatures, we cannot rule out a few snowflakes falling on Sunday especially in the higher elevations.

We start the week with partly cloudy skies and temperatures near normal in the mid-40s. We are still watching the storm system that will move in on Tuesday afternoon.

That system will bring rain, but we could see a change over to snow as colder air filters on the back side of the low. Still a lot of questions with that system so we will keep you updated throughout the weekend.

Meteorologist Aaron Castleberry has your morning drive forecast coming up on Good Morning Region 8.
