A storm system moving in from the Southwest Tuesday will interact with some colder air moving in from the North. This will result in rain changing over to snow for parts of the State. However, accumulating snow will likely be confined to Northern and Northwest sections of the State. Computer models have been trending warmer for Central Arkansas, keeping all precipitation as rain. Below are several computer models showing accumulated snowfall through 9 AM Wednesday. All of the models show snow staying North, with only minor accumulations.
(NAM snow depth at 9 AM Wednesday)
(GFS snow depth at 9 AM Wednesday)
(RPM snow depth at 9 AM Wednesday)
Bottom line is that any snow at all looks unlikely South of I-40, with minor accumulations North. Higher elevations over Northwest Arkansas stand a shot at seeing a couple inches of accumulation.
