NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE LITTLE ROCK AR
425 AM CDT SAT SEP 24 2016
High pressure remained in place across the state and much of the
southeast United States today. This area of high pressure helped
temperatures stay 5 to 10 degrees above normal for this time of
year. Afternoon high temperatures climbed into the upper 80s to mid
90s. At Little Rock, the high was 94 degrees which tied the daily
high temperature record set on this date in 1961.
Portions of the state will see another hot day on Sunday, but cooler
weather is on the horizon. A front will approach from the west on
Sunday, bringing rain chances to much of Arkansas as it moves
through the state late Sunday night and into Monday. Heavy amounts
of precipitation are not expected.
the front will also help to cool temperatures off nicely for the
start of the work week. Highs will range from the upper 70s in the
northwest on Sunday, where cloud cover and rain chances return
first, to the upper 80s and low 90s in the east. However, expect
highs in the 70s to low 80s Monday and highs firmly in the 70s for
Tuesday. Overnight lows will also cool off, with nighttime
temperatures falling from the 60s and 70s last night, to the low to
mid 50s by Monday and Tuesday nights.
It will begin to feel much more like fall across Arkansas during
this upcoming week.
