Random thoughts about the weather and life. I may even vent every now and then. Since 2004!

Flurries OR White Christmas???
Some new data coming in tonight suggest that we "could" see more than flurries in some locations Thu into Fri. This is just one model run, so we'll have to see how this unfolds. It shows the low tracking a little more south and east. This would leave the moisture around when the cold air arrives.... briefly. The NW counties of Region 8 stand the best chance of seeing accumualtions, including Sharp, Stone, Izard, Fulton, Baxter, Oregon, and Howell. If you notice on the map, the GFS model even has some 1" totals near Pocahontas and Walnut Ridge. The rest of us, including Jonesboro are left in the "dusting" category.
I usually would not hop on one model run, but it's Christmas and I'm really wanting some flakes to fly! It was a nice surprise to see this shift in the forecast. Hopefully it pans out. More updates are to come on my Twitter feed on the right side of this page.
