Clouds associated with thunderstorms in Kansas and Missouri, spread
south in to the Natural State causing partly to mostly cloudy skies.
Rain showers followed suite and eventually made their way into the
northern portion of the state by mid to late morning. As we
approached the noon hours, temperatures rose from the 70s into the
upper 70s, 80s and 90s.

For today, another warm day is on tap, especially for central and
southern parts of Arkansas where temperatures will be around Heat
Advisory Criteria. Therefore, please be sure to practice heat
safety. Highs today in the north will range from the upper 80s to
lower 90s, while mid and upper 90s are expected further south. The
rain is expected to continue through today and tomorrow as scattered
showers and embedded thunderstorms are expected. Then tonight, a
frontal boundary will move into the state from the north, bringing
more widespread precipitation to the remainder of the state tonight
and into Friday.

The combination of cloud cover and rainfall will knock temperatures
down significantly on Friday, with highs only in the mid 80s up
north, and only in the low 90s in the south. This weekend will be
cooler still however as both cooler and drier air move in from the
north. Highs in the 80s to low 90s...with lows in the 60s...will
carry through the weekend and into early next week. Some areas of
northern Arkansas could very well see overnight lows dip down into
the 50s Saturday and Sunday night.
