Area Forecast Discussion...UPDATED
National Weather Service Little Rock AR
537 AM CST Sat Dec 7 2019


For the 12Z TAFs, MVFR and IFR conditions continue to impact KPBF
and KLLQ, with additional impacts possible across the northern
area terminals due to patchy fog. Conditions should clear through
the mid morning hours, with mostly clear to partly cloudy skies
through the afternoon. Mostly cloudy skies are expected to return
this evening.


SHORT TERM...Today Through Sunday Night

It`s been a pleasant night and early morning across the Natural
State, with mostly clear to partly cloudy skies and temperatures in
the 30s and 40s. Latest satellite imagery shows low cloud cover
lingering across the far south, while surface obs are starting to
indicate patchy fog developing across northern portions of the
state. With dewpoint depression values becoming smaller through
the morning hours, expect light patchy fog to spread and linger
through the mid morning. With high pressure overhead, anticipate a
beautiful day for Arkansas with maximum temperatures rising into
the 50s, and mostly clear to partly cloudy skies.

Similar yet slightly warmer weather conditions are expected for
Saturday night/Sunday morning, with lows in the upper 30s and lower
40s and highs in the  upper 50s and lower to mid 60s. This is mainly
due to WAA from southerly surface winds. Sunday night and Monday
morning will be warmer as well, with lows only dropping into the
upper 40s and 50s. This will likely be due to the addition of
overcast skies ahead of an approaching trough. This will also bring
slight chances for rain showers across the northern portions of the
state late in the period.

LONG TERM...Monday Through Friday

A cold front wl be poised to drop SEWD thru AR on Mon, accompanied
by SCTD showers/few storms. The front is progged to stall to the SE
of the FA Mon night into Tue as it encounters a SW steering flow
aloft. More widespread rain wl return to much of the area Mon ngt
into Tue as a strong upper impulse interacts with the frontal bndry.

Rain chances wl gradually decrease fm the NW on Tue as cooler and
drier air advects into the region. Cannot rule out a brief wintry
mix on the NW periphery of the precip early Tue mrng before tapering
off. Sfc high pres wl settle ovr the FA thereafter, resulting in dry
conds and below average temps for the latter half of the work


.LZK Watches/Warnings/Advisories...NONE.
