Arkansas Storm Team looks ahead at Thanksgiving Week weather

Weather Headlines


Rain exited the state early Wednesday morning as a low pressure system moved east. The associated cold front will clear out of Arkansas by noon, leaving only some upper level clouds behind for the afternoon.

Temperatures Wednesday will be warmest in the morning (mid-60’s), staying mainly in the mid-50’s through much of the afternoon under a mostly sunny sky.


Thanksgiving Day is shaping up to be one of the best weather days of the week! Drier and cooler air will be in place across the state following a cold front from earlier in the week. The day will start with temperatures in the mid-upper 30’s. Under a mostly sunny sky, temperatures are forecast to reach the mid-60’s in central Arkansas!


Another area of low pressure is expected to develop over the southwest Wednesday and Thursday. It will be moving southward Friday, over the Gulf Coast. While these systems usually produce a lot of rainfall across the southeast, this particular one will be somewhat cut off by another cold front pushing into Arkansas from the northwest. Rain chances will be confined farther to the south, mainly over Louisiana Friday.

An isolated shower or two will still be possible, mainly in southern Arkansas, but Friday should be mostly dry with some clouds and sun. Temperatures are forecast to reach the low 60’s.


The passage of Friday’s cold front will leave cooler and drier air behind for the weekend. Saturday will feature a mostly sunny sky with temperatures topping out in the mid-50’s.

If you’re hoping to get some outdoor decorating done this weekend, Saturday looks to be the better day to do so.


Another area of low pressure will be moving east as the cold front stalls to our south. This system is more likely to produce scattered showers on Sunday. It is also going to be a cold, rainy day as temperatures will likely only be in the low 50’s under a cloudy sky.
