WILD Weather Ahead


As residents of western Arkansas, specifically the River Valley region, none of us are strangers to the wild weather patterns that we experience. That reputation appears to be upheld this week as we go through a roller coaster of conditions. Tomorrow afternoon temperatures cloud slip into the low 90’s across Arkansas with a soupy air mass. By Thursday evening we will struggle to climb into the mid 60’s with MUCH drier air on tap.

The overall long range pattern for our area is trending cooler, in fact, it looks pretty stout in regards to April. While I’m not stating a blizzard is on tap, it will certainly feel much more winter like through mid-month. This will eventually change though, as spring will gradually take back over as we progress and transition into the month of May. I would NOT plant until we get through this cooler stretch, some of us may even see a freeze.

Long Range Guidance Suggesting Cooler Temperatures

With the drastic change from warm to cold air, there does appear to be a chance for severe weather tomorrow, specifically tomorrow evening. However I do suspect this threat to remain just east of our region in central and eastern Arkansas. As always I’ll be watching if that changes. Please remain vigilant as we are now entering our most active stretch of severe weather season.
