425 PM CST SUN FEB 19 2017

After a morning with widespread low clouds and patchy fog,
temperatures soared throughout the day as the clouds began to depart
and the fog dissipated. By late afternoon, temperatures topped out
in the 70s which is about 10 to 20 degrees above normal for this
time of year.

Clouds will return tonight in advance of an approaching storm
system. Low temperatures will be fairly mild, with readings only
falling into the 50s and lower 60s by daybreak. Rain chances will
start to make their way into western parts of the state by Monday

Rain chances will slowly increase from west to east on Monday as a
cold front moves toward the state. Some isolated thunderstorms will
be possible, but the severe weather threat is low. Rainfall amounts
will generally be between one quarter to one half inch, with locally
heavier totals of one inch or more across western and southern
areas. Daytime highs will be in the upper 60s across western
Arkansas to upper 70s in eastern areas.

Rain will begin exiting to the east on Tuesday, with dry and
springlike conditions expected for Wednesday and Thursday. A new
cold front will arrive from the Plains Thursday night and Friday. It
will be windy surrounding the front, with small chances for
thunderstorms in the forecast.
