WEATHER SUMMARY FOR ARKANSAS
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE LITTLE ROCK AR
425 PM CDT Fri Apr 28 2017
It was quite the warm, muggy day across the Natural State as a
strong southerly flow brought Gulf-of-Mexico-like air to the region
in front of an approaching low pressure system. As of late Friday
afternoon, temperatures have ranged from low 70s in Northwest
Arkansas to mid 80s across southern Arkansas.
Tonight, showers and thunderstorms continue, with heavy rain, are
forecast to develop over northern Arkansas as an upper system moves
through the region and interacts with the stalled frontal boundary.
A flash flood watch is in effect due to the expected heavy rain
Friday night and over the weekend. Lows Friday night will be in the
50s and 60s.
The weekend will stay active, with strong to severe storms on
Saturday, and the periods of heavy rainfall through Sunday. Several
inches of rain will be seen, especially over the northern half of
the state, and flash flooding and river flooding will be possible.
Now is a good time to review your severe weather safety rules. Stay
informed by monitoring the latest weather forecasts, updates and
outlooks from your National Weather Service forecast office.
