At the surface, a frontal boundary was stalled in the vicinity of
the interstate 20 corridor of northern louisiana. Further back,
the 850 mb front was analyzed at 00z over northern arkansas.
Uplift north of the surface boundary, as well as the presence of
the 850 front continues to aid in the development of precipitation
over much of arkansas. With the front hung up to the south, and a
steady stream of low and mid-level moisture into the region,
precip will continue into the overnight hours.
Over the north, any lingering snow will taper off as dry air
continues to advect in. Will let the winter weather advisory
expire for those locations at midnight.
Over the central and south, there is still some question as to
the axis of heaviest snowfall. Still think there will be a pretty
sharp gradient over the area, but the big question remains where.
Based on the slower motion of the surface feature, have adjusted
forecast amounts upward slightly over central arkansas, though, at
this point, not enough to include in the winter storm warning.
Still looks like the heaviest amounts will be focused to the south
of little rock, particularly either side of an arkadelphia to
dewitt line, where the highest totals could exceed four inches.
Snow will taper off over central arkansas after about 3 4 am and
after 6 am over the south.
Next issue will be wind chills. Expanded the advisory a little
further south, including the little rock metro area, as the
coldest wind chill values could fall to or a little below zero
For the moment, all forecasts are up to date.
Prev discussion (issued 512 pm cst Mon jan 15 2018)
surface front in the vicinity of southern arkansas will continue
to sink southward, with precipitation developing behind it.VFR
conditions will gradually deteriorate this evening to MVFR or even
ifr as precipitation develops. Over the central and south, there
will be a ra sn or ra pl sn mix initially, transitioning to all sn
between 03z and 06z (give or take), versus all sn over the north.
Conditions will gradually improve during the morning hours, as
drier air works its way in from the north, and precipitation comes
to an end. Expect sustained winds of 10-15 knots, with higher
gusts through the overnight hours. Winds will diminish as the
gradient subsides during the day Tuesday. Tafs out shortly. &&

These are not intended to be fact, they are my opinions. 4) Small programs that generate result presented on a web page. Like any computer program, these may and in some cases do have errors. Almost all of these also make simplifying assumptions so they are not totally accurate even if there are no errors. Please verify all results. 5) Weather information is from numerious of sources and is presented automatically. It is not checked for accuracy either by anyone at L-36.com or by the source which is typically the US Government. See the NOAA web site for their disclaimer. Finally, tide and current data on this site is from 2007 and 2008 data bases, which may contain even older data. Changes in harbors due to building or dredging change tides and currents and for that reason many of the locations presented are no longer supported by newer data bases. For example, there is very little tidal current data in newer data bases so current data is likely wrong to some extent. This data is NOT FOR NAVIGATION. See the XTide disclaimer for details. In addition, tide and current are influenced by storms, river flow, and other factors beyond the ability of any predictive program.
