Severe thunderstorms turning to freezing rain, sleet and snow are possible in our weekend forecast from the National Weather Service in Little Rock, Arkansas.
A strong cold front will move through the state on Saturday and bring the potential for severe weather Saturday afternoon and evening across portions of southern Arkansas. While the setup doesn’t support a major severe weather outbreak, strong thunderstorms with all modes of severe weather (hail, winds, tornado) can not be ruled out at this time.
Behind the front, temperatures will fall rapidly and wintry precipitation will be possible. At this time it appears the main precipitation types will be sleet and snow, with freezing rain looking less likely.
It is still too early to determine wintry precipitation amounts. Please continue to monitor future forecasts and social media posts for any updates.
