WEATHER SUMMARY FOR ARKANSAS
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE LITTLE ROCK AR
525 AM CDT WED AUG 23 2017

Isolated to scattered showers and thunderstorms were seen across
mainly western portions of the state during the overnight hours as a
cold front slowly made its way into the state. Some locally heavy
rainfall was seen in spots, but generally less than one half inch of
rain was observed. Temperatures this morning were in the 70s.

Expect rain chances to lessen across northern and central areas
during the day as the front continues its journey southward. Winds
will be out of the northeast and sky conditions will begin to clear.
Afternoon highs will top out in the lower to mid 80s, a few spots in
northern Arkansas may stay just below 80 degrees.

For tonight, temperatures will be quite cool for late August. Under
clear sky conditions, temperatures will fall into the mid to upper
50s across northern areas with 60s expected elsewhere.

Continued dry weather and below normal temperatures will be seen for
the next couple of days. Then, attention will turn to the Gulf of
Mexico where tropical development is likely in the next 48 hours and
a tropical system may approach the Texas Gulf Coast this weekend.
Remnants of the tropical system may bring heavy rain along the Gulf
Coast and possibly southern Arkansas during the early to middle part
of next week. Stay tuned to the latest forecast information for
updates.
