Area Forecast Discussion...UPDATED
National Weather Service Little Rock AR
612 PM CDT THU JUL 28 2016


Updated to include the 00Z aviation discussion below...



Some isolated SHRA/TSRA are ongoing early this evening...which
may continue over the next few hrs. Coverage overnight should be
limited...with only very isolated activity expected. Some patchy
fog could once again be seen near sunrise...especially in areas
that saw rainfall this Thu afternoon. For much of think
additional SHRA/TSRA will be seen...and have mentioned some VCTS
as a result.



SHORT TERM...Tonight Through Saturday

Not a lot to talk about in the short term period really. Scattered
showers and thunderstorms will persist in the northeastern half of
the state this afternoon and evening. Otherwise there will be at
least a chance of rain through the remainder of the period as
northwest flow aloft maintains a chance of MCS activity during
overnight hours...and remnant outflow boundaries likely being the
catalyst for diurnally driven convection.

Temperatures will remain around or slightly below normal.

LONG TERM...Saturday night Through Thursday

The extended period will start with a ridge of high pressure to the
west, and a broad northwest flow over Arkansas. There will also be a
front close to the Arkansas/Missouri border. This will result in a
somewhat unsettled pattern, with clouds and chances for showers and
thunderstorms this weekend.

Heading into next week, the ridge will build toward the area. The
front will move back to the north, and rain chances will decrease.
Temperatures will also slowly warm up. By the end of the period, any
precipitation will be isolated.

Temperatures will be at/maybe a little below average this weekend.
Readings will be above average the remainder of the period.


.LZK Watches/Warnings/Advisories...NONE.
