Weather Forecast for the Future of the Supply Chain: A Clear Path

The Future of the Supply Chain, FreightWaves’ first in-person event since November 2019, will take Northwest Arkansas by storm next week.

Shaking up the industry again with an all-new freight experience, more than 1,600 registered guests and dozens of incredible speakers will throng the Rogers Convention Center on Monday and Tuesday.

Severe storms have hit this part of the country twice this week, flooding streets and downing trees and power lines in nearby towns of Fayetteville and Bentonville, Arkansas.

FreightWaves Senior FreightCaster Kaylee Nix described the weather at Rogers Friday morning simply as “rough.” It was foggy, with a temperature of around 50 degrees, but it was better than dangerous thunderstorms.

Will the weather stay cool and wet next week? Will Mother Nature unleash high winds or even tornadoes? What should everyone bring?

The good news is that the latest forecast for northwest Arkansas looks great and everyone can leave their umbrella at home. The high pressure will spread throughout the region, allowing for clear skies and generally unusually warm temperatures. So even though the event will be held indoors in air conditioning, don’t bring anything too heavy.

There will also be breezes every day and evening from Sunday with gusts reaching 25 to 30 mph. Here’s the daily outlook for Rogers, including weekend arrival days.


Day: Sunny with a high in the upper 70s.

Night: Mainly clear with lows in the upper 50s.


Day: Sunny with a high in the mid-80s.

Night: Rather clear with a minimum around 70 degrees.

Monday (The Future of the Supply Chain Day 1)
