A front bringing precipitation to the Lakes Region could possibly bring some snow to the higher elevations of the Ozark Mountains.
National Weather Services forecasters have posted a Winter Storm Watch for both the Harrison and Berryville areas from Wednesday night into Thursday morning. Forecasters say the potential snowfall could be from three to five inches in elevations above 2000 Ft while a possible 1-3 inches of snow could fall in lower elevations. While most temperatures are expected to stay at or just above freezing, temperatures at the higher elevations could lead to more snowfall. Counties in the Winter Storm Watch include Boone, Carroll, Madison, Marion, Searcy, an Van Buren. The precipitation will start as rain in the region on Wednesday.
Forecasters are calling for mostly rain in the Missouri Lakes Region as well but some snow could develop Wednesday night into Thursday with little accumulation expected at this time.
