425 PM CST Mon Dec 11 2017

Temperatures across Arkansas today were definitely not what one would
expect in mid December as mild conditions prevailed. In fact, south
to southwest winds in advance of a cold front helped pull afternoon
temperatures into the 60s and 70s across the state.

At the 4 PM hour, winds have already shifted to the northwest across
northern Arkansas and temperatures have begun to drop somewhat. The
front will move through the state tonight sending temperatures back
to near normal levels for the majority of the week.

Winds were particularly gusty across parts of the state and humidity
levels dropped into the teens and 20s across most of the area. These
conditions, when combined with extremely dry vegetation, set the
stage for a high wildfire threat. A red flag warning was in effect
for a good part of the state for Monday.

A reinforcing shot of dry and colder air will filter into the state
overnight behind the aforementioned cold front. This will result in
cooler temperatures on Tuesday. High pressure will prevail across
the mid south for the foreseeable future resulting in a dry weather
pattern through the week with temperatures dropping back off into
the 50s for the majority of the week. Overnight lows will mostly be
in the 30s.
