A weak upper air disturbance brings some light precipitation to parts of Arkansas tonight. Some sleet and freezing rain will fall at times mainly before midnight across Central Arkansas, with mostly plain rain South. Temperatures will be close enough to freezing across Southern and Southeast Arkansas that a few icy spots are possible.
Clouds finally clear out Tuesday as high pressure builds in, but temperatures stay well below average. A cold front arrives Wednesday bringing another shot of cold air for the second half of the week. A storm system will approach by Friday bringing rain back into the area. Temperatures may start off cold enough that some mixed precipitation is not out of the question, especially North.
