WEATHER SUMMARY FOR ARKANSAS
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE LITTLE ROCK AR
1125 AM CDT SUN JUL 24 2016
Sunday morning across Arkansas started off a bit cooler than the
previous few days as we have reached the end of a heat wave...
with lows that ranged from the low to mid 70s. As of the 11 o`clock
hour, temperatures have risen into the mid and upper 80s. This is
generally around 5 degrees cooler than the previous few days, owing
to increased cloud coverage.
As Sunday progresses, temperatures will rise into the 90s. With
humid air in place, one more day of the heat advisory is in place
for the state. Heat index values will rise to near 105 across the
state Sunday afternoon. Showers and thunderstorms will be possible in
the afternoon and evening hours, especially across the southeast
quarter of the state.
Sunday night, some clouds will be seen and some patchy fog toward
dawn Monday, especially in areas that received rain. Low
temperatures will be in the 70s.
Early next week, the ridge of high pressure responsible for the heat
will weaken somewhat. This will allow a weak cold front to approach
from the north. Rain chances will increase, and temperatures will be
closer to average.
