Warming Center closed, temperatures expected to improve

Posted: December 7, 2013 - 7:42pm

Conway could experience a slight chance of sleet Sunday morning before 10 a.m., according to the National Weather Service, followed by a slight chance of freezing rain.

Skies will be cloudy with a high near 30 degrees. Northeast winds of 5 mph become south in the afternoon. Chance of precipitation is 20 percent with new precipitation amounts of less than a tenth of an inch possible.

Sunday night will be mostly cloudy with a low of about 22 degrees. Winds from the southeast not expected to exceed 5 mph. Winds will turn northwest after midnight.

The City of Conway closed its warming center Saturday at noon due to a low turnout. The McGee Center opened Friday at 5 p.m. as a shelter for those without heat.

“With temperatures expected to improve and no reports of power outages, we do not anticipate there will be a need to keep the center open,” said LaTresha Woodruff, public information officer for the Conway Police Department. “Should a need arise we will address it at that time.”

The National Weather Service is predicting a mostly sunny Monday with a high near 34 degrees. Northeast winds at 5 to 10 mph. Monday night temperatures will drop to a chilly 12 degrees.
