WEATHER SUMMARY FOR ARKANSAS
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE LITTLE ROCK AR
925 PM CDT Tue Oct 17 2017

It was mostly sunny on Tuesday, and temperatures were a little below
average. Afternoon readings peaked in the upper 60s to mid 70s, and
ranged from 69 degrees at Fayetteville and Newport to 75 degrees at
Hot Springs and Monticello.

On the Tuesday evening weather map, a large area of high pressure
covered most areas from the Gulf Coast to the Ohio and Tennessee
Valleys and New England. The high brought plenty of sunshine to
Arkansas, along with very dry conditions.

Humidity levels dropped below 30 percent in southern and western
sections of the state on Tuesday. Given this and not much rain since
the beginning of September, the wildfire danger was elevated across
much of the region. Burn bans were posted in 31 of 75 counties.

It will remain dry through Friday with temperatures warming to above
normal levels. A storm system will approach from the Plains this
weekend, with moisture on the increase. Rain chances will ramp up
significantly Saturday night and into Sunday as the system moves
through.
