This National Weather Service radar image taken shortly after 11 a.m. Thursday shows the cold front moving into Arkansas.

A potent cold front moving across the region will deliver showers and isolated thunderstorms by late afternoon Thursday and much lower temperatures by sunrise Friday, the National Weather Service said.

Temperatures will drop "dramatically" behind the front, the weather service said, with degree readings expected in the mid-30s in the state's northwest and west by sunrise Friday. Friday morning could bring near-record-low temperatures, the weather service advised.

Snow is possible in the far northwest corner of the state late Thursday or early Friday, and again Friday night into Saturday morning, forecasters said. Brief bursts of heavy snow are also possible, but the snow won't accumulate because of higher ground temperatures, the weather service said.

Temperatures Saturday morning in the state's north and west are expected to fall close to freezing, so those with sensitive outdoor plants may need to take measures to protect them, forecasters said.

A freeze watch is in effect from late Thursday through Friday morning in Benton, Carroll, Madison and Washington counties, the weather service said.

What a cold spring. Not many articles on the theory of man-made global warming these days.

Well inquire you have moved from Rolling Stone, and Vanity Fair for your information to some other junk site(s). Climate change? Oh yes the four seasons, Summer, Fall, Winter, and Spring.
Read the story this paper:
"2013 tornado count 'average' for typical Arkansas season, weather service says"
While the state has experienced lower-than-usual spring temperatures for 2013, the National Weather Service says, Arkansas' tornado count is on par for an average season.

Of course the climate is changing, as it has been since the beginning of time. Just as the species evolve, just as the continents drift, climate evolves and changes always. While it is likely that humans have some influence on the climate of mother earth, it is impossible to control how that influence plays out.

Has anyone ever seen inquire and Cliff Clavin at the same time? I think this is starting to make sense now.

Sand; I will enjoy that in 30 days when we are in Destin for the week. Of course being 12 years old I hope I don't have to drive the whole way

Changing from the specific "warming" to a more coverall term of "change" effectively put all you doubters in your place once and for all. Besides climate and weather are totally unrelated and the sun has no effect on the earth.
