First of all, thank you to all the new followers I’ve gained today! Welcome!
The NWS will be holding a special briefing at 4:00 am, and I plan to set my alarm to catch that. That will be an interesting briefing, for sure.
The transition from rain to snow should occur during the afternoon on Tuesday.
Total snowfall accumulations depends on two things; timing and temperature. The quicker than transition to snow occurs, the more snow we’ll get. The faster our temps drop to freezing, the more snow we’ll get. That’s the basics.
If everything comes together perfectly for snow, we’ll end up with 1.5-2 inches of snow.
If most everything works against snow, we’ll end up with a dusting.
The “safe” expectation is for around an inch of snow. That’s been my forecast from the beginning and I continue to feel confident about that. This will be a wet snow, perfect for making snowballs! ha
As for roads, I think they’ll stay fine through at least mid afternoon (3:00). After that point, I’d keep an eye on that temperature and be mindful of bridges and overpasses. Remember, bridges and overpasses freeze over first.
As of 6:15 p.m., the cold front is moving through Little Rock, Arkansas, with plenty of showers out ahead of the front.
I’ll update as needed!
Timing of rain to snow transition: noon to 3:00
Snowfall accumulation: ~1″
