THANKSGIVING WEEKEND CONTINUES: SATURDAY LOOKS CLOUDY & COOL
Overcast skies graced the Mid-South for the last Saturday in November 2014. No rain as of mid-morning. But, more rain expected into tonight and tomorrow, along with some breezy winds. I’ll have a look at your forecast coming up right after a look at…
Heading to the 2014 Egg Bowl today? Breezy and cool/mild. Temps in the 60’s will be nice, but with winds from the SSW at 10-20 MPH at times, there will be a decent cooling effect, so a good jacket/light coat will be a good idea. Better chances for (light) rain into evening as the game wraps up.

SKYBLOG3: STARGAZING TONIGHT… #FORGETABOUTIT
In a word or two: no way. Too many clouds, not good viewing conditions this evening into overnight as cloud cover increases and sticks around.
EXTENDED FORECAST: CLOSE BUT NO CIGAR
By early Monday morning, and well outside the WREG-TV News Channel 3 viewing area, as cold air prepares to dive into the Mid-South, it will take the trailing edge of rain and turn it into a rain/snow mix along I-44 between Tulsa, OK, and St. Louis, MO. The WREG News Channel 3 viewing area will be too warm for anything involving frozen precip, but if you are in motion and heading that way, may want to allow for extra time (and a lot less speed) on Monday early into NW Arkansas, southern Missouri and NE Oklahoma.
