Sunny skies return by Monday afternoon and continue into Tuesday until our next cold front arrives Wednesday. Some light wintry precipitation is possible across NW Arkansas Wednesday morning where temperatures are close to freezing. However, any accumulations, if any occur, would be very light and not impactful. Temperatures will rise above freezing throughout the day Wednesday. 

A warming trend will close out the upcoming week.
