This map shows 3am on Sunday.

The cold front will be moving across the area and turning the wind direction around from breezy south winds to breezy north winds.


By Sunday morning the front will be across south Arkansas with temperatures falling from the north to the south.

It does appear rain will be out of the area for Saturday and Sunday.


There will be a good deal of clouds on Saturday and even early Sunday with a little bit of a clearing on Sunday.


The next chance for rain looks to increase on Monday night into Tuesday with another storm system that’s actually passing to our south so we should see some light to moderate rain on the north side of the system in our area.
