Staying sunny through Thursday, but another system brings rain back for Friday. Enough cold air will remain as the system approaches that rain may begin mixed with sleet in some spots. The greatest threat for a sleet mix will be across North Central Arkansas during the day Friday. Any frozen precipitation will change over to all rain across the entire State by Friday evening as temperatures warm. Rain will continue through the overnight hours Friday and come to an end Saturday morning. Saturday will likely stay mostly dry, but a few sprinkles are possible. Skies will clear back out for Sunday with below average temperatures. Warmer air will arrive by the middle of next week with Southwest winds.
