Mostly clear skies continued for the Natural State on Wednesday as a
ridge of high pressure continues to suppress any type of activity.
High temperatures ranged from the 80s in the Ozarks and high
Ouachita mountains to 90s elsewhere as of late afternoon. Heat index
values approached or climbed above 100 for much of the state,
outside of northwest Arkansas.
For the rest of the evening, dry conditions will persist with only a
few puffy cumulus clouds in the sky, before diminishing later in the
overnight hours. Lows are expected to be in the low to mid 70s
Thursday through much of the upcoming weekend, the high will shift
east providing daily isolated to scattered rain chances across parts
of the state. Temperatures will be near seasonal normals, meaning
highs will be in the upper 80s to lower 90s and lows in the upper
60s to mid 70s. With additional humidity in place, heat index values
