Cloudy and cold start to the week

A few flurries are popping up in northeast Arkansas but most areas will just stay cloudy as temperatures only rise into the upper 30s to low 40s by afternoon with a light north wind.

TODAY: Cloudy then becoming mostly cloudy. Wind: North 5 mph. High 41.

TONIGHT: Some clouds could linger in a few spots. Lows in the upper 20s to low 30s. Wind will be light to near calm.

TUESDAY: Expect a mix of sun and clouds and slightly warmer with afternoon highs back in the 50s and overnight lows in the upper 30s.

WEDNESDAY: Highs will be in the middle 50s with a partly cloudy sky and lows will drop into the lower to mid 40s.

LATE WEEK: Rain chances return Thursday and chances will increase Friday and Saturday. Highs Thursday will warm into the upper 50s with overnight lows in the 40s. Mainly cloudy for Friday with rain in the forecast, highs in the upper 50s with overnight lows in the low 40s to upper 30s.

WEEKEND OUTLOOK: Saturday is looking wet with rain likely. Some of those showers could linger into early Sunday. Highs in the 40s to near 50 and lows dropping into the 30s and 20s. We could see even colder temperatures as we push into Sunday with highs possibly not getting out of the low 30s. Any lingering moisture from Saturday night into Sunday could mean chances of winter weather this weekend but way too early to call. Keep it with the First Alert Weather Team for the latest.
