WEATHER SUMMARY FOR ARKANSAS
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE LITTLE ROCK AR
925 PM CDT THU MAR 23 2017
Sunny conditions affected the state this afternoon. Temperatures
ranged from the upper 70s to mid 80s and most locations.
Cloud cover will increase from south to north overnight. Low
temperatures will be in the upper 50s and lower 60s.
On Friday, an upper level storm system will intensify as it moves
into the central Plains, and will drag a cold front into Arkansas.
The front will bring showers and thunderstorms, with some severe
weather expected in the form of a line of thunderstorms. The
thunderstorms will push across the state Friday evening through the
overnight hours. At this time, strong damaging winds appear to be
the greatest threat, however large hail and isolated tornadoes
cannot be ruled out. The storms are forecast to move out of Arkansas
by early Saturday. Highs on Saturday will range from the upper 60s
northwest to near 80 southeast.
Dry weather is expected for most of Sunday, but there will be
another chance of rain late Sunday and into the first part of the
new work week.
