Spring started this past  weekend but temperatures have been very cold; a Freeze Warning continues for Monday morning.

Expect a warming trend for this week with highs back in the 70s and breezy south winds.

Thunderstorms are expected Wednesday night into Thursday morning; some of the them could be severe.

We may see another frost in NW Arkansas on Friday morning later this week.

A chance for rain is possible on Easter but it’s currently trending towards the end of the day.

The surface map on Monday afternoon shows the high sliding to the south. The high has been giving us colder than normal air but as it moves east we’ll see warmer temperatures as the wind turns more southerly.

The next chance for thunderstorms will be Wednesday night into Thursday morning. Some of the data is farther east with the rain but it stands to reason that some strong thunderstorms will be possible in our area until the front shifts east.

Another front will arrive on Easter with another chance for thunderstorms. Uncertainty is high with this event and the details are far from certain, It’s something to watch as we head into the weekend.
