... Coldest air of the late fall season to affect Arkansas...

A strong cold front and Arctic high pressure system will build
into Arkansas later tonight and into Thursday, and settle over
the region into the weekend.

The front will bring much colder air, as well as some light rain
or drizzle. As temperatures become colder... the light rain may
also mix with some light snow or flurries tonight to early
Thursday morning. Little to no accumulation is expected at this
time. If there is any small accumulation, it would be seen in
grassy areas or in normally colder locations.

Very cold air will move into the region, and single digit wind
chills will be possible over northern Arkansas... especially in the
higher elevations. The coldest low temperatures will be Friday
morning with the teens over northern Arkansas, while the teens and
20s in northern areas to some 30s central to southern areas Thursday
and Saturday. High temperatures will only reach the 30s to 40s
Thursday to Saturday. The Friday morning lows are likely to be
the coldest in a couple of Winters at several locations.

Extra precautions should be taken to minimize the affects of these
very cold temperatures. Be sure to check on the elderly, outdoor
pets, and possible freezing water pipes. Temperatures will
slowly moderate over the weekend.
