WEATHER SUMMARY FOR ARKANSAS
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE LITTLE ROCK AR
1125 AM CDT THU JUL 30 2015

CLEAR TO PARTLY CLOUDY CONDITIONS PREVAILED ACROSS THE NATURAL STATE
OVERNIGHT BEHIND A COLD FRONT THAT WAS MOVING THROUGH THE REGION.
ALTHOUGH THIS FRONTAL BOUNDARY DID NOT BRING MUCH IN THE WAY OF
RAIN...IT DID BRING DRIER AIR AND SUMMAT COOLER TEMPERATURES. THIS
MORNINGS LOWS WERE A FEW DEGREES COOLER THAN WEDNESDAY
MORNINGS...WITH READINGS IN THE UPPER 60S TO AROUND 80 DEGREES.

SLIGHTLY COOLER AND LESS HUMID AIR WILL CONTINUE TO FILTER INTO
NORTHERN AND CENTRAL PARTS OF THE STATE AS THE DAY PROGRESSES...WITH
HIGHS IN THE UPPER 80S TO THE MID 90S.

MEANWHILE...THE AFOREMENTIONED FRONTAL BOUNDARY WILL LINGER OVER
SOUTHERN ARKANSAS TODAY...WITH SMALL CHANCES OF SHOWERS AND
THUNDERSTORMS FOR THOSE AREAS. THE COMBINATION OF ABUNDANT MOISTURE
AND EXPECTED HIGHS IN THE UPPER 90S WILL ALLOW FOR AFTERNOON HEAT
INDICES TO CLIMB INTO THE 105 TO 110 RANGE IN SOUTHERN ARKANSAS. AS
A RESULT...A HEAT ADVISORY WILL BE IN EFFECT THIS AFTERNOON FOR
SOUTHERN PARTS OF THE STATE.

ALTHOUGH THE LESS HUMID AIR AND SLIGHTLY COOLER TEMPERATURES WILL
FEEL BETTER TO PEOPLE AND ANIMALS...THE DRIER AIR WILL TEND TO
STRESS VEGETATION. PLANTS IN PARTS OF CENTRAL AND SOUTHERN ARKANSAS
ARE ALREADY SHOWING SIGNS OF DRYING OUT...AS LITTLE RAIN HAS FALLEN
IN THE LAST FEW WEEKS.
