.PREV DISCUSSION...(ISSUED 303 PM CDT Tue May 23 2017 )

DISCUSSION...

Scattered showers and isolated thunderstorms will continue tonight
as a cold front moves through the state. Upper low pressure will
move south through Missouri tonight and clip northeast Arkansas on
Wednesday. Rain chances will continue until this low moves east of
the state...therefore tapering off during the afternoon. Clouds
and the presence of the upper low Wednesday will keep our
temperatures cool. High pressure builds into the area Thursday and
with more sun, temperatures will climb to closer to normal values.

A warm front will bring warmer temperatures on Friday along with a
small chance of showers and thunderstorms. Rain chances increase
Friday night and Saturday as the front becomes stationary north of
Arkansas. Arkansas could see one to two inches of rain over the
weekend. Low pressure then brings the cold front through on
Sunday. Rain chances diminish early on Monday as the front moves
out of the area. Will keep small rain chances in for Tuesday.
