On the leading edge of the colder airmass, precipitation will form. The type will vary on how quickly the colder air arrives. If it moves slowly, we'll stay with a light rain on Monday morning. If the colder air moves faster, we could get a transition to a wintry mix and light snow for a brief period in Northwest Arkansas.
