This Hazardous Weather Outlook is for a Large Part of Arkansas.

.DAY ONE...Tonight

Areas of fog will be seen this evening and tonight over much of
Arkansas. Areas of dense fog will also develop mainly over parts of
central and eastern areas. A dense fog advisory will be in effect.
Motorists should use extra caution when driving into foggy areas.
Winds will be elevated over northern Arkansas from the south at 10
to 20 mph with gusts to around 25 mph, and a Lake Wind Advisory has
been issued for counties in north Arkansas. Overall the winds will
lower a bit tonight, but remain elevated into Thursday.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Thursday Through Tuesday

Morning dense fog will be seen in parts of Arkansas, and slowly thin
Thursday morning as south winds pick up. A strong storm system will
be working its way across the area early in the period with showers
likely ongoing across the entire state. There will be gusty winds
associated with this system, which would create hazardous conditions
on area bodies of water. These winds will also will be difficult for
high profile vehicles mainly on Thursday and Thursday night.

Low pressure will develop on the associated cold front during the
day Thursday and move off to the northeast. Much colder air will
arrive behind the system to bring the possibility of some winter
weather late Thursday night and into Friday. As the colder air
spills south, a wintry mix will be possible late Thursday into
Friday for at least parts of northern and central Arkansas.

It appears that some snowfall accumulations could be possible with
the heaviest amounts over the eastern third of the state. However,
accumulations are not expected to be significant at this time but
may still be enough to cause some travel concerns on area highways.

There remains some uncertainty with the details of this storm system
especially with its overall movement and when the colder air does
arrive. Please continue to monitor the latest outlooks from your
National Weather Service.

Regardless, much colder air will settle back over the area for the
weekend with temperatures falling to well below normal levels once
again. Another storm system could bring some more winter weather to
the area early next week. Stay tuned.
