A wind advisory remains in effect for much of Arkansas through 6 PM this evening. Strong West winds will continue across the State today behind the cold front that swept through last night. Intense low pressure moving into the Ohio Valley creating a strong pressure gradient is bringing very windy conditions throughout Arkansas, especially over the Northern half of the State. Winds are strong enough to bring down tree limbs and cause power outages


Winds have already gusted close to 50 MPH in some spots, including a 49 MPH gusts recorded at Little Rock National Airport.

The winds combined with much cooler temperatures today are creating cold wind chill values. The wind chill is how cold it feels when wind is taken into account. Wind chill values through the afternoon will range from the 20s North to 30s South


Winds will diminish somewhat during the evening hours, but temperatures will quickly drop into the 30s after dark. Lows by Friday morning will fall below freezing into the mid to upper 20s.
