WEATHER SUMMARY FOR ARKANSAS
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE LITTLE ROCK AR
525 PM CDT WED JUL 29 2015

AND THE BEAT GOES ON...AS HIGH PRESSURE ALOFT WILL PERSIST ONCE MORE
ACROSS THE MID SOUTH. SOME SLIGHTLY COOLER AND DRIER AIR IS EXPECTED
OVER THE NEXT FEW DAYS BUT PRECIPITATION WILL REMAIN SPARSE,

THE HIGH TEMPERATURE TODAY FINALLY HIT THE CENTURY MARK AT LITTLE
ROCK AS THE MERCURY TOPPED OUT AT 101 DEGREES. SEVERAL OTHER
LOCATIONS SAW 100 DEGREES OR MORE TODAY AND EVEN IF TRIPLE DIGITS
WERE NOT REACHED EVERYWHERE...THE HUMIDITY LEVELS CERTAINLY MADE FOR
A MISERABLE DAY.

AN EXCESSIVE HEAT WARNING REMAINS IN EFFECT FOR THE EASTERN THIRD OF
THE STATE UNTIL 7 PM WITH MUCH OF THE REST OF THE STATE HAVING A
HEAT ADVISORY UNTIL THE 7 PM HOUR.

SOME RELIEF IS IN STORE HOWEVER...AS THE HIGH PRESSURE SYSTEM BEGINS
TO MOVE WEST TOWARDS THE ROCKIES TODAY AND THURSDAY. THIS WILL ALLOW
A COLD FRONT TO PUSH THROUGH THE REGION FROM THE NORTH LATE TODAY
AND TONIGHT. ISOLATED THUNDERSTORMS WILL ACCOMPANY THE
FRONT...FOLLOWED BY SLIGHTLY COOLER AND DRIER AIR BY THE END OF THE
WEEK. HOWEVER...WIDESPREAD RAINFALL IS NOT EXPECTED.

ALTHOUGH THE LESS HUMID AIR AND SLIGHTLY COOLER TEMPERATURES WILL
FEEL BETTER TO PEOPLE AND ANIMALS...THE DRIER AIR WILL TEND TO
STRESS VEGETATION. PLANTS IN PARTS OF CENTRAL AND SOUTHERN ARKANSAS
ARE ALREADY SHOWING SIGNS OF DRYING OUT...AS LITTLE RAIN HAS FALLEN
IN THE LAST FEW WEEKS.
