WEATHER SUMMARY FOR ARKANSAS
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE LITTLE ROCK AR
525 AM CDT THU OCT 02 2014

CLOUDS INCREASED OVER ARKANSAS DURING THE PREDAWN HOURS.
TEMPERATURES WERE IN THE MID 60S TO MID 70S.

ON THE EARLY MORNING WEATHER MAP...A COLD FRONT EXTENDED FROM
MINNESOTA TO THE TEXAS PANHANDLE. AHEAD OF THE FRONT...THE
ATMOSPHERE WAS UNUSUALLY WARM AND MOIST...AND THIS WILL PROVIDE
PLENTY OF ENERGY FOR STORM DEVELOPMENT TODAY AND TONIGHT.

ANY STORMS TODAY WILL BE ISOLATED TO SCATTERED. LATER THIS
AFTERNOON...A LINE OF STORMS WILL FORM IN EASTERN OKLAHOMA...AND
WILL SWEEP INTO ARKANSAS THIS EVENING. THE LINE SHOULD ARRIVE
IN THE FAR WESTERN COUNTIES TOWARD SUNSET...AND WILL CROSS THE
STATE IN ABOUT SIX HOURS.

THE LINE OF STORMS WILL MOVE QUICKLY...WHICH USUALLY INCREASES THE
CONCERN FOR STRONG TO DAMAGING WINDS. THAT WILL BE THE CASE WITH
THIS EVENT. GIVEN A LOT OF MOISTURE...TORRENTIAL DOWNPOURS ARE
EXPECTED...WITH A QUICK HALF INCH TO AN INCH AND A HALF OF RAIN.

THE STORMS WILL BE FOLLOWED BY THE AFOREMENTIONED FRONT...WITH WINDS
SHIFTING FROM THE SOUTHWEST TO THE WEST AND NORTHWEST. COOLER AND
DRIER AIR WILL BE NOTED LATER TONIGHT AND FRIDAY...WITH RAPID
CLEARING FROM THE WEST.

AS FAR AS TEMPERATURES...HIGHS TODAY WILL BE IN THE 80S TO AROUND 90
DEGREES. LOWS TONIGHT WILL RANGE FROM THE UPPER 40S IN THE NORTHWEST
TO THE MID 60S IN THE SOUTHEAST. HIGHS ON FRIDAY WILL BE IN THE 60S
AND 70S IN MOST AREAS.

BELOW NORMAL TEMPERATURES AND DRY CONDITIONS WILL CONTINUE THIS
WEEKEND....WITH A SLOW WARMING TREND EARLY NEXT WEEK.
