WEATHER SUMMARY FOR ARKANSAS
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE LITTLE ROCK AR
525 AM CDT SUN JUL 13 2014

THE HOTTEST DAY OF THE YEAR FOR MANY AREAS OF THE STATE IS EXPECTED
TODAY AS HIGH PRESSURE IS SITTING SQUARELY ON TOP OF US. HIGHS TODAY
ARE EXPECTED TO TOP OUT IN THE MID TO UPPER 90S STATE WIDE AND WITH
DEW POINTS IN THE 70S...EXPECT TO SEE HEAT INDICES OVER 100 DEGREES
ACROSS A LARGE SWATH OF THE STATE.

AT THE 5 AM HOUR...SKIES ARE GENERALLY CLEAR BUT SOME PATCHY FOG AND
EVEN A LITTLE HAZE IS OCCURRING AT A FEW PLACES ACROSS THE STATE. IT
IS A VERY MUGGY START TO THE DAY WITH THE ENTIRE STATE SITTING IN
THE 70S WITH DEW POINTS ONLY A TOUCH LOWER THAN THE ACTUAL AIR
TEMPERATURE. THERE IS ALSO VERY LITTLE WIND TO HELP STIR THE AIR UP
WITH SOUTHWEST WINDS AVERAGING 5 MPH OR LESS.

THIS HOT SPELL WILL NOT LAST LONG. HIGH PRESSURE WILL WEAKEN DURING
THE UPCOMING WEEK. A DEEP UPPER LEVEL LOW MOVING THROUGH THE NORTHERN
PART OF THE NATION WILL DRAG A STRONG COLD FRONT THROUGH THE REGION
FROM THE NORTH LATE MONDAY AND TUESDAY. THE FRONT WILL BRING CHANCES
FOR SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS...FOLLOWED BY MUCH COOLER AIR.

BY WEDNESDAY...MORNING LOW TEMPERATURES WILL BE IN THE 50S AND
60S...WITH AFTERNOON HIGHS IN THE 70S AND 80S. IN FACT...THESE
READINGS COULD BE MORE THAN 10 DEGREES BELOW NORMAL OVER A GOOD PART
OF THE STATE.

SOME DATA IS SHOWING THE FRONT STALLING ALONG THE GULF COAST...WITH
A STORM SYSTEM FORMING ALONG THE FRONT IN TEXAS. THIS WOULD RESULT
IN CLOUDS AND AREAS OF RAIN THURSDAY AND FRIDAY...WITH WELL BELOW
NORMAL TEMPERATURES CONTINUING. SEVERAL INCHES OF RAIN...MAINLY OVER
THE SOUTH...WILL BE POSSIBLE FROM THIS SET UP AND THE SITUATION WILL
CONTINUE TO BE WATCHED CLOSELY OVER THE NEXT FEW DAYS.
