WEATHER SUMMARY FOR ARKANSAS
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE LITTLE ROCK AR
925 PM CDT FRI AUG 22 2014

ANOTHER WARM DAY WAS NOTED ACROSS THE NATURAL STATE AS A DOME OF
HIGH PRESSURE CONTINUED TO DOMINATE THE WEATHER. WITH SUNNY SKIES IN
PLACE...AFTERNOON TEMPERATURES RANGED IN THE MID TO UPPER 90S...WITH
HEAT INDEX VALUES IN THE UPPER 90S TO AROUND 105 DEGREES. ISOLATED
STORMS DEVELOPED IN THE THE HEAT OF THE AFTERNOON...BUT DISSIPATED
WITH THE LOSS OF DAYTIME HEAT.

THERE WILL BE LITTLE CHANGE IN THE FORECAST OVER THE WEEKEND AS HIGH
PRESSURE STRENGTHENS...THUS THE HOT AND HUMID CONDITIONS WILL
CONTINUE. HEAT INDEX VALUES WILL APPROACH OR EVEN EXCEED 105
DEGREES IN SOME CENTRAL AND EASTERN LOCATIONS. OVERNIGHT LOWS WILL
BRING LITTLE RELIEF...AS TEMPERATURES WILL ONLY FALL INTO THE MID
70S. HIT AND MISS POP UP SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS WILL BE POSSIBLE
EACH AFTERNOON.

HOWEVER...THERE COULD BE SOME RELIEF FROM THE HEAT BY THE MIDDLE OF
NEXT WEEK AS THE RIDGE OF HIGH PRESSURE BREAKS DOWN AND ALLOWS A
COLD FRONT TO APPROACH. THIS WILL BRING THE NEXT BEST CHANCE OF RAIN
AND SOME COOLER TEMPERATURES BY WEDNESDAY AND THURSDAY.
