Bands of rain are increasing and heading our way. An upper level low has now closed off and is spinning to our southwest. Take a look at the 6 AM satellite picture:
1.5″ to 2.5″ of rain have fallen so far and we are expecting another .5″ to 1″ before this storm exits the region on Friday afternoon. The next disturbance is now showing up in northwest Arkansas and it is rotating northwest and west as it is in the circulation of this upper level low. Rain is increasing to our southwest and we will be tracking this new area of rain on 41 Action News through the morning.
Can you believe this early spring growth of the grass, the blooming of the Bradford Pear and Red Bud trees? There is still no sign of one more freeze. The average last date for a freeze is around April 8th. Our last freeze was on March 10th when it was 32°. I took this picture, above, with Breezy and Stormy in the background focusing on the grass that is in a rare March growth explosion.
Have a great day!
