Hitting the Road

The National Weather Service has a window (found on its local office homepages) where you can get a forecast by plugging in a "City, St" or zip code and clicking "Go". This will get you a quick 7 day outlook with current conditions, radar and satellite pictures. 

Forecasts can be obtained by entering a "City, St" or zip code.

Leading up to Thanksgiving, a quick moving storm system dragged a cold front into Arkansas on November 26th. The front did not amount to much locally other than some patchy light rain. North and east of the system, light snow and flurries fell from the upper Midwest into the mid-Mississippi and Ohio Valleys. Meanwhile, a much bigger system tracked along the east Coast. The system produced a swath of heavy snow from the central Appalachians to New England, and was responsible for lengthy travel delays.

 

There will be a split flow aloft on 12/03/2014.

This will result in mild air across Arkansas. Meanwhile, northwest winds from Canada will bring cold air into the northern Rockies, the northern and central Plains and the upper Midwest. A storm system ("L") over Arizona will track toward the middle of the country, and may create an unsettled pattern as opposing air masses collide.
 

Looking ahead, the month will finish on a mild (above normal temperatures) and mostly dry note here at home. A few showers could pop up on the 30th and into December 1st as a new cold front arrives from the north. Temperatures will cool off temporarily before warming up again on the 3rd/4th. That is when the pattern may become active. A storm system will approach from the southwest, with chances for rain and thunderstorms increasing.
