1125 AM CDT THU AUG 25 2016

High pressure continued to control the weather pattern across the
Natural State on Thursday morning. Lows this morning ranged from the
60s in the Ozarks to 70s elsewhere. With few clouds in the sky,
temperatures have been able to climb up into the 80s and lower 90s
by late morning.

Into the afternoon and evenings hours, the ridge of high pressure to
the east will slowly break down. Combined with sufficient moisture,
there is a slight chance of rain in the forecast today across the
southern half of the state. Highs will range from the 80s in the
mountains to 90s for the rest of Arkansas. With high humidity in
place, heat index values will approach or exceed 100 for much of the
state, with the exception of the higher elevations.

With a trough approaching the state Friday and the weakening of high
pressure, unsettled weather can be expected, with a 50 to 60
percent chance of rain in the forecast...primarily in the late
morning and afternoon hours. Shower and thunderstorm activity will
be more isolated on Saturday and Sunday as the ridge of high
pressure builds back into the region. Highs will be in mid 80s to
mid 90s, with lows generally in the 70s.
