On the early morning weather map, high pressure was building over
the Ohio Valley from the north. The high will be close enough to
keep Arkansas dry today, but there will be lots of clouds.
Meanwhile, a storm system will wobble toward the region from the
southwest United States. Temperatures are currently in the 60s with
east to northeast winds.

On Wednesday, the system will have relocated to the southern
Plains. As the system nears, scattered to numerous showers
and thunderstorms will develop, especially during the afternoon
and overnight hours.

It appears severe weather will be likely during this time
frame. Damaging winds and isolated tornadoes will be the main
concerns. There will also be areas of heavy rain. Widespread
one to two inch amounts could occur over central and western
sections of the state, with locally more.

As far as temperatures, highs today will be in the upper 60s to
upper 70s. Lows tonight will be in the 50s to lower 60s. Highs on
Wednesday will be in the 70s to lower 80s.

Looking ahead, showers and thunderstorms will linger into Thursday,
with a continued chance of severe storms east of Little Rock. Dry
weather will return Friday and Saturday. Yet another storm system
will bring hit and miss showers Sunday and Monday, especially across
the southwest half of Arkansas.
