WEATHER SUMMARY FOR ARKANSAS
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE LITTLE ROCK AR
925 PM CDT Tue Mar 28 2017
Partly to mostly cloudy skies were noted across Arkansas on Tuesday.
High temperatures were mainly in the 70s and lower 80s, with parts
of northeast Arkansas remaining in the upper 60s.
Meanwhile, a warm front was located across southern Arkansas Tuesday
evening. The front will continue to drift northward overnight as a
slow moving storm system moves into the Plains States. A few showers
and thunderstorms will be possible along and north of the boundary
overnight. Lows tonight will range from the mid 50s to the mid 60s.
On Wednesday, low pressure will be situated in the southern Plains.
Highs will be in the lower 70s to the lower 80s. As this system
nears Arkansas, scattered to numerous showers and thunderstorms will
develop. Storms will begin in western portions of the state during
the day and spread eastward Wednesday night.
It appears severe weather will be likely during this time frame.
Damaging winds and isolated tornadoes will be the main concerns.
There will also be areas of heavy rain. Widespread one to two inch
amounts could occur over central and western sections of the state,
with locally more.
Looking ahead, showers and thunderstorms will linger into Thursday,
with a continued chance of severe storms east of Little Rock. Dry
weather will return Friday and Saturday. Yet another storm system
will bring hit and miss showers Sunday and Monday, especially across
the southwest half of Arkansas.
