A cold front is nearing from the west and will move across the area late Sunday night into Monday with scattered rain breaking out ahead of the front.

Due to the strong pressure gradient with high pressure off the east coast and low pressure passing to our north; winds will rush today upwards 30mph and possibly over 40mph in NW Arkansas.

Later tonight, the greatest chance for rain will be in Central/East Arkansas as the cold front moves in from Oklahoma.

This image shows 9pm Sunday. Expect scattered areas of rain into the overnight and Monday morning.

This front originated from low pressure that moved in from the west coast. As such, temperatures won’t cool down in the wake of the front. Highs this week will be in the 60s.

A bigger system is still slated to arrive the weekend after Christmas with widespread rain & thunderstorms likely.
