Area Forecast Discussion
National Weather Service Little Rock AR
359 AM CDT THU SEP 29 2016

.SHORT TERM...Today Through Saturday
Cool dry weather is expected through the short term period. A
large area of high pressure aloft is now over the nations mid
section with a strong upper low over the Ohio River. The upper low
will continue to provide a northwest flow aloft over Arkansas
through Saturday. Very little in the way of cloud cover is
expected through the period...though it will be on the increase
Friday and Saturday over the northwest half of the area. Highs
today will be in the 70s across the area with the central and
south sections warming into the low 80s on Saturday. Lows each
night will be in the 50s.

&&

.LONG TERM...Saturday Night Through Wednesday
The extended forecast will mainly be dry with gradually warming
temperatures. On Sunday, the strong upper low pressure system will
be over the Great Lakes region, while an upper high pressure ridge
will be over the western Plains. Through mid-week, the upper low
pressure continues to move east, while the upper high pressure ridge
settles over the plains. Continued dry weather through Tuesday night
as temperatures warm to above normal values. On Wednesday, the next
frontal system and upper support begin to move into the region, and
a chance of convection is forecast to develop over AR. Some
uncertainty does exist in the timing of the system and location and
intensity of the convection, and these will be fine tuned in later
forecasts. As mentioned, highs will start in the 70s to some 80s, to
mainly the 80s by mid-week. Lows will start in the 50s, then warm to
the 60s mid-week.
