WEATHER SUMMARY FOR ARKANSAS
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE LITTLE ROCK AR
425 PM CST Wed Dec 13 2017

Warm and windy weather transpired across the Natural State on
Wednesday afternoon as temperatures soared into the upper 50s and
60s with westerly winds sustained between 10 and 20 mph and gusts
over 30 mph. These temperatures were well above average for mid-
December... some 10 to 15 degrees above the average daily value.

These warm temps and gusty winds come ahead of a cold front that has
made its way into Central Arkansas by the late afternoon hours. This
cold front will continue passing through the state in the evening
hours. As a result, temperatures will fall into the 20s and 30s by
Thursday morning.

With lack of significant rainfall over the last 30 days, vegetation
around the state is very dry. As a result, all of the state is under
a High Fire danger.

Dry weather will persist through the remainder of the work week with
rain chances returning to the forecast Saturday night and continuing
into Sunday. It does not appear that this storm will be a "drought
buster," but some locations in the southeast part of the state could
see as much as an inch of rain.
