WEATHER SUMMARY FOR ARKANSAS
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE LITTLE ROCK AR
1125 AM CST Sat Dec 16 2017

Other than some high clouds through the morning hours, it was clear
to partly cloudy. Low temperatures were generally in the 20s and
30s. With plentiful sunshine through the mid to late morning hours,
temperatures soared into the upper 40s and 50s. Winds were out of
the southwest at 5 to 15 mph with some higher gusts up to 20 mph or
so intermittently.

An area of high pressure will bring one more dry day, but clouds
will increase. There will be more clouds due to an approaching storm
system from the southwest. The system will bring good chances of
rain tonight and into Sunday morning. Through Sunday, a half inch to
inch of rain will be possible over the southern half of the state.
Lesser amounts are expected farther north.

High temperatures today will be in the mid 50s to lower 60s. Lows
tonight will be in the upper 30s and lower 40s. Highs on Sunday will
be in the lower 50s to mid 60s.

A weak cold front will push through from the north on Sunday, with
rain mostly ending Sunday afternoon. The front will stall nearby,
and will be surrounded by a lot of moisture along the Gulf Coast. A
new system from the southwest will interact with the front, and
bring widespread heavy rain from eastern Texas to Georgia Monday
through Wednesday. Some of this rain will build into southern
Arkansas.

The new system will pass by Thursday, with dry weather expected.
On Friday, another cold front will surge into the region from
the Plains, and will be followed by much colder air. The week
will end with much below average temperatures.
