WEATHER SUMMARY FOR ARKANSAS
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE LITTLE ROCK AR
1125 AM CDT SAT SEP 24 2016
Dry conditions and clear skies were experienced overnight along with
a little bit of patchy fog. Temperatures remained mild to even warm
by late September standards, with overnight low temperatures in the
mid 60s to low 70s.
Late this morning, temperatures have already climbed into the 80s
across all of the Natural State with humid conditions as well. Skies
were mostly sunny and winds were light and from the southeast.
High pressure will be in place for the rest of today and continue to
hold temperatures well above normal values for this time of year
with upper 80s to low 90s for highs this afternoon. Most of the
state will be dry today, but a few isolated showers or thunderstorms
in the southeast parts of the state will be possible.
Change is coming though. A front will approach from the west on
Sunday, bringing rain chances to much of Arkansas as it moves
through the state late Sunday night and into Monday. Heavy amounts
of precipitation are not expected.
It will also cool temperatures off nicely for the start of the work
week. Highs will range from the upper 70s in the northwest on
Sunday, where cloud cover and rain chances return first, to the
upper 80s and low 90s in the east. However, expect highs in the 70s
to low 80s Monday and highs firmly in the 70s for Tuesday. Overnight
lows will also cool off, with nighttime temperatures falling from
the 60s and 70s last night, to the low to mid 50s by Monday and
