Happy Monday, friends!
We will have to find a way to make our own sunshine because Mother Nature isn’t going to provide much over the next week or so.
The cloudy pattern will come with cool temperatures and bouts of wet weather through the end of the week.
Drizzle and light showers will break out tonight making for a damp and cool start to the day Tuesday. There will also be areas of fog, especially south of the interstate.
Showers will move out Tuesday afternoon, but clouds will hang on into Wednesday night with areas of fog possible.
Temperatures Tuesday will range from cool to the north to mild to the south as warmer air briefly noses north across Northern Arkansas.
Clouds and chilly temperatures will blanket the area Tuesday night into Wednesday and more fog looks possible, especially near and south of the interstate Tuesday night.
Another wave of wet weather will move in Wednesday afternoon through Thursday morning. Rainfall will be more widespread and heavier with this storm with totals over an inch expected along and south of the interstate.
The cloudy pattern will finally break heading into the weekend with a little sunshine showing up Friday afternoon and Saturday. Clouds and wet weather will quickly reappear Sunday into Monday.
The NWS forecast discussion had an interesting blurb about the long-term forecast for December. They mentioned a blocking pattern in Greenland will play on our weather for the latter part of the month. You may wonder what high pressure in Greenland will be doing to our weather. The set-up will push a trough through the middle part of the country, which will be a conveyor belt for chilly, Canadian air. This will set us up for cooler-than-average temperatures until the end of the month.
