Warming Up Ahead of our Next Front

Another warm and windy day ahead for Friday. Snow totals in these areas tonight through tomorrow will be in the 3 to 6 inch range.

Thursday will be windy and warmer with increasing moisture throughout the day. “We’re getting into much warmer weather in our area”, Hoffman said.

Sunday: Timing is still in question of the front’s local impacts, but we’re expecting widespread shower and storm activity on Sunday as the cold front pushes through the Big Bend and South Georgia. Clouds will build in through the morning as the front nears.

The cool air holds through most of the rest of the week.

This storm will start to taper off Friday but some morning snow showers are possible.

Friday: A slight chance of rain, then a chance of rain and thunderstorms after 1 p.m. But rain and a few thunderstorms can be expected on Sunday. As always stay with WGNO on air and online for the latest. Today will be the warmest day of the week with highs in the mid- to upper 70s. Many locations make it to 80-degrees to end the work week!

Expect a gradual warming trend Sunday and Monday. This puts us in a flawless warm sector with that southwesterly wind flow.

It is shaping up to be an active weather day for many parts of East Texas on Friday as numerous ingredients are coming together to provide a severe weather outbreak across our region. Things will change on Sunday as a backdoor cold front to our northeast drops southwest and cool us off.

The risk means multiple, more persistent severe storms are possible in cities like Little Rock, Conway, Fayetteville, Fort Smith, Harrison, Texarkana, El Dorado, Pine Bluff and Hot Springs. High temperatures will likely be back in the 50s and a few spots might even be in the 40s.

The storm system does look to stall in Northwest Alabama during the morning, which would increase our threat farther east for the afternoon and evening.

Mostly clear skies will continue overnight with weakening winds out of the east. Temperatures will not be as chilly, falling into the mid to low 60s.
