Garrett’s Blog: Snow Sunday: Noon – 9pm; Winter Weather Advisories in Effect

This is an archived article and the information in the article may be outdated. Please look at the time stamp on the story to see when it was last updated.

In the wake of last night’s cold front, another disturbance in the mid-levels of the atmosphere will advance east Sunday afternoon and evening with snow developing and causing travel concerns. Some light snow is already falling across Northwest Arkansas.

The heaviest snow will fall from 2pm-9pm along and south of I40. While snow totals may not be large; expect roads to become slick and slow tonight across much of the area with school cancellations possible Monday.


This is a look at what radar may look like around 3pm. Everything on this map is snow. Notice the heaviest is along and south of I40; specifically the Ouachitas. Totals will average around an inch or two but some locations in the higher terrain of the Ouachitas could see up to 4″.


The Winter Weather Advisory is only for the Fort Smith area and south. It may be expanded to Northwest Arkansas depending on how the system evolves, but it appears an inch or less will occur in NWA.


This is the snow probability map for 1″ of snow. High probabilities are from Fort Smith & south. Especially the Waldron area.

More updates later tonight and tonight on 5NEWS…
