Just a quick update with the timing of Sunday’s system.

We’re expecting rain for most of Saturday night with a quick transition to snow on Sunday morning. The transition will happen first in NW Arkansas and later in the River Valley. Overall, this appears to be a light snow event but drastically falling temperatures (we’re talking single digits Sunday night) will make for hazardous driving conditions. Perhaps not just on bridges and overpasses either; roads could also be slick given how cold the air is expected to be.

Latest look at timing…
