This week central Arkansas is forecast to experience some cold nights with temperatures dipping below freezing. The National Weather Service says Thursday night will be one the coldest nights so far this season with lows dropping into the mid-20s.
Senior Forecaster John Lewis says the cold air is coming because of a change from a westerly direction to a northern direction.
"The pattern is changing a bit so the flow is coming more out of Canada," Lewis said. "That will drive a front into Arkansas from the north and that's where the cold air will come from."
