National Weather Service

Parts of Northwest Arkansas could see a wintry mix early next week.

A mild weekend is expected, but a strong cold front will sweep through the area Sunday night into Monday, according to the National Weather Service.

Light precipitation Sunday night could mix with or change to light sleet and snow Monday as cold air filters south.

The front could also bring temperatures as low as 17 degrees to some parts of the region, forecasters said.
