WEATHER SUMMARY FOR ARKANSAS
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE LITTLE ROCK AR
925 PM CDT TUE JUL 28 2015

A LARGE RIDGE OF HIGH PRESSURE CONTINUED ITS DOMINANCE ACROSS THE
DEEP SOUTH...WITH HOT AND HUMID WEATHER PREVAILING. TEMPERATURES
ONCE AGAIN FLIRTED WITH THE CENTURY MARK AND HEAT INDICES EXCEEDED
IT IN MANY CASES.

HIGH PRESSURE WILL CONTINUE INTO WEDNESDAY...WITH TEMPERATURES A
DEGREE OR TWO WARMER THAN TODAY. AN EXCESSIVE HEAT WARNING IS IN
EFFECT FOR THE EASTERN THIRD OF THE STATE...AS HEAT INDEX READINGS
WILL BE OVER 110 DEGREES. MUCH OF THE REST OF THE STATE WILL
CONTINUE TO HAVE HEAT INDEX READINGS ABOVE 105 DEGREES...WITH A HEAT
ADVISORY REMAINING IN EFFECT.

THERE IS SOME RELIEF COMING. HIGH PRESSURE WILL BEGIN TO MOVE WEST
TOWARDS THE ROCKIES WEDNESDAY. THIS WILL ALLOW A COLD FRONT TO PUSH
THROUGH THE REGION FROM THE NORTH LATE IN THE DAY. ISOLATED
THUNDERSTORMS WILL ACCOMPANY THE FRONT...FOLLOWED BY SLIGHTLY COOLER
AND DRIER 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.
