Showers and thunderstorms moved across the Natural State this
morning as a low pressure system to the north pushed a weak cold
front into the region. Some areas across western and central
Arkansas picked up as much as 1 and 2 inches of rain overnight into
the morning while much of southern and eastern Arkansas received
little to no rainfall.

The aforementioned front will slowly move into central Arkansas
before becoming nearly stationary by Friday. The precipitation from
this morning gradually came to an end by mid day. Dry air began to
filter into the northern counties behind the front, elsewhere hot
and humid conditions were felt. Afternoon temperatures were in the
mid 80s.

On Friday, mostly sunny and dry conditions can be expected for
Arkansas, except across southern portions of the state where partly
to mostly cloudy skies will be seen. High temperatures will be in
the upper 80s to lower 90s. Drier air will settle in across north
Arkansas tomorrow while humid conditions will persist across much of
central and southern Arkansas.

Another round of unsettled weather will be possible heading into the
beginning of the weekend, with some chance of showers and isolated
thunderstorms possible. Temperatures will be near normal with highs
in the upper 80s to the lower 90s. Lows will range from the mid 60s
to the mid 70s.
