The back of the rain approaching Northwest Arkansas around 2-3pm this afternoon. With temperatures around 37-39 degrees in most of Northwest Arkansas, you may even briefly spot some sleet pellets or wet snowflakes in the rain. Driving into work, I noticed some of the raindrops hitting the windsheild had some texture to it, in the form of partially melted wet snowflakes. So don’t be surprised if you see some of that, especially in the higher elevations of Northwest Arkansas/Boston Mountains. This rain will be quickly moving east of the Fort Smith/Fayetteville area by 4pm with drier conditions this evening.
Hang in there…still expecting major improvements to our temperatures Friday afternoon and into the weekend!
