Area Forecast Discussion...Updated for Aviation
National Weather Service Little Rock AR
1215 PM CST Tue Jan 24 2017

.AVIATION...
VFR conditions are expected through this evening, with some high
clouds over Arkansas. Late tonight and into Wednesday morning, low
clouds are expected to increase from the south/southwest. This will
result in areas of MVFR conditions.

A strong storm system will track from the central Plains to the
western Great Lakes through the period. The system will drag a cold
front into the region. Ahead of the front, gusty south/southeast
winds will be noted this afternoon at 10 to 15 mph. Gusts will reach
16 to 24 mph. It will remain breezy tonight, but a little less
gusty, with winds turning to the southwest. Winds will be
west/northwest at 6 to 12 mph behind the front Wednesday
morning. (46)

.PREV DISCUSSION...(ISSUED 347 AM CST Tue Jan 24 2017)

SHORT TERM...Today Through Wednesday Night
High pressure continues over the area this morning..and the ridge
axis is now approaching the Mississippi River. Winds will become
light from the southeast this morning, then increase and become
south this afternoon. A warm front moving through the state today
will bring temperatures well above normal, with highs in the lower
60s to lower 70s. A weak cold front then moves through Wednesday
and will bring a slight chance of showers to the southeast...
mainly in the morning. There just is not much moisture for the
front to work with. Much cooler temperatures will be noticed
behind the front Wednesday night...with lows in the mid 20s to mid
30s.

LONG TERM...Thursday Through Monday
Little changes to the long term. Little to be amused by. Several
weak systems will move through in the mean flow, but will barely be
noticeable, save a few clouds. Weak front will move through late in
the weekend, but again, we get zip. Temperatures will be close to or
a little below seasonal averages.
