TONIGHT:

Some scattered snow showers & flurries are likely tonight-tomorrow morning with variable clouds.  Localized minor accumulations are possible of less than 1".  Not everyone will see accumulation due to scattered nature of the snow. 

A few slick spots could occur in areas that see dustings or whitening of grass & cars as temperatures drop into the 26-29 range.

TUESDAY:

Scattered snow showers will bubble up tomorrow with lots of clouds & a bit of sun peeking in places.  Brief accumulations of less than 1" could occur in the heaviest snow showers.  Highs will run near 32.

TUESDAY NIGHT-WEDNESDAY:

Scattered snow showers are likely tomorrow night-Wednesday morning.  There is better potential of minor accumulations over a larger part of the viewing area at 1" or less.  1-2" amounts could occur in eastern Jasper & western Pulaski counties due to some lake enhancement.  Some icy spots are possible on roadways Tuesday night-Wednesday morning.

After any flurries or snow showers Wednesday morning, some gradual clearing is likely in the afternoon.  Highs should run aroun 31.

THURSDAY TO DECEMBER 10:

A wave of snow will pass Thursday with 1" or less of accumulation.  If it slows down, we could get more.  At this point, the speed will be such to limit overall accumulation a bit.

Also note the significant winter storm late week-weekend.  Models keep it south of our area, but I am not sold on that just yet.  It may still shift northward.

Below to well-below temperatures will dominate right throguh December 10.

Some freezing rain may go to all rain, then end as snow around December 15.

Bitterly, near record/record cold air may follow as very strong Arctic high follows with weakness in the Polar Vortex.  Lows could drop below zero, especially if we can get a bit of a snowpack.

Snow is possible around December 18 & December 22-24.

Mix to rain to snow may around around December 26.

Temperatures may moderate quite a bit, followed by some rain & then snow to start the new year as Arctic air returns.

Overall, temperatures will average below normal & snowfall above normal mid-December to early January.
