WEATHER SUMMARY FOR ARKANSAS
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE LITTLE ROCK AR
1125 AM CDT TUE JUL 28 2015

A LARGE RIDGE OF HIGH PRESSURE CONTINUED ITS REIGN ACROSS THE DEEP
SOUTH...WITH HOT AND HUMID WEATHER PREVAILING. OVERNIGHT
TEMPERATURES WERE STILL RATHER WARM...WITH LOWS IN THE LOWER 70S TO
LOWER 80S. A HEAT ADVISORY IS IN EFFECT FOR MUCH OF ARKANSAS.

HIGH TEMPERATURES TODAY WILL BE IN THE 90S...WITH READINGS NEAR 100
DEGREES IN PLACES. HEAT INDEX VALUES WILL RANGE FROM 100 TO 110
DEGREES IN MOST AREAS. A HEAT ADVISORY IS IN EFFECT FOR MUCH OF
ARKANSAS. LOWS TONIGHT WILL BE IN THE 70S.

THERE IS SOME RELIEF COMING. ON WEDNESDAY...HIGH PRESSURE WILL EXIT
TOWARD THE ROCKIES. THIS WILL ALLOW A COLD FRONT TO PUSH THROUGH THE
REGION FROM THE NORTH. ISOLATED THUNDERSTORMS WILL ACCOMPANY THE
FRONT...FOLLOWED BY SLIGHTLY COOLER AND MORE COMFORTABLE AIR BY THE
END OF THE WEEK.

BY COMFORTABLE...IT IS MEANT THAT THE AIR WILL NOT BE NEARLY AS
HUMID. WHILE THIS WILL FEEL BETTER TO US...IT WILL TEND TO STRESS
VEGETATION. PLANTS IN PARTS OF CENTRAL AND SOUTHERN ARKANSAS ARE
ALREADY SHOWING SIGNS OF STRESS...AS LITTLE RAIN HAS FALLEN IN THE
LAST FEW WEEKS.
