Weather Summary for Arkansas
National Weather Service Little Rock AR
255 PM CST Mon Feb 19 2018

Warm conditions were seen so far this afternoon as breezy southerly
winds ushered in warm and moist air to the region. Temperatures this
afternoon have warmed into the mid 60s to upper 70s. Most areas
remained dry this afternoon...but a line of showers were lifting
north over western Arkansas this afternoon...from around Fort Smith
to near Harrison.

The best chances for seeing showers and a few thunderstorms will be
across the northwest third of the state through tonight. Given the
warm southerly winds...temperatures tonight will not fall very
far...with lows by Tuesday morning in the 60s for most areas.

A cold front will approach the state from the northwest on
Tuesday...with chances for widespread showers and thunderstorms
highest across far northwest sections of the state through Tuesday
afternoon. However...this front will slowly drop southeast Tuesday
night through Wednesday before stalling across far southeast
Arkansas Wednesday night and Thursday morning. This will result in
the best chances for widespread rainfall shifting further south and
east Tuesday night through Wednesday night.

Several inches of rainfall will result from this slow moving
front...with rainfall amounts of 2 to 5 or more inches across the
northwest two thirds of the state. Expect generally 1 to around 3
inches across the southeast third of the state.
