Good Thursday morning, today is going to be a chilly day outside across the ArkLaMiss with similar conditions as yesterday. Highs are going to be topping out around 48 degrees with winds picking up from the northeast throughout the afternoon. Clouds will be sticking around throughout the day and it will be a gloomy one. Slight chances for precipitation come into the forecast late today and overnight tonight.
Overnight those lows are going to be falling down into the upper 20’s and lower 30’s and the chance for any potential snow across the area looks to be at its highest. The biggest inhibiting factor at this point seems to be the lack of moisture we are working with. While temperatures at the surface will be cold enough to support some sort of wintry mix or snow, we have a good shot at just staying dry which is being supported by some recent model runs. South and Central Louisiana will see mostly rain with some potential frozen precip at the northern boundary where it is cold enough, and the snow looks to fall through South to Central Arkansas with accumulations up to 1″ possible, but most spots just seeing a dusting. The I-20 corridor has potential for a quick flurry or mix, but for the most part will not see too much. Bad news for snow lovers!
The chances will continue into the later morning and early afternoon hours before all the snow and the rain pushes off to the east by late Friday. It’s looking like the overnight threat of any winter weather from Friday into Saturday is looking less likely and we should be staying completely dry then, as we are taking those chances out of the forecast. Friday temperatures will only top out around 36 degrees with breezy winds from the north and overcast skies.
