There were a lot of clouds over Arkansas on Friday, and a few
isolated showers. High temperatures were in the 70s, and ranged from
72 degrees at Harrison to 79 degrees at De Queen and Jonesboro.

On the Friday evening weather map, high pressure remained anchored
from the central Appalachians into the southeast United States.
Under the high, the weather remained mostly dry in Arkansas, but not
for long. A cold front will approach from the Plains on Saturday,
and chances for showers and thunderstorms will increase.

As far as temperatures, lows tonight will be in the upper 50s to mid
60s. Highs on Saturday will be in the mid 70s to lower 80s.

Storms on Saturday are expected to develop quickly from southeast
Kansas into central and eastern Oklahoma and northern Texas Saturday
afternoon and evening. Severe storms appear likely in these areas.
Precipitation will build into western Arkansas late Saturday night,
and will weaken somewhat. Even so, some storms could be severe, with
damaging winds the main concern.

Showers and scattered thunderstorms will continue on Sunday. Rainfall
will average a half inch to an inch and a half, with locally more
than two inches.

The front will exit to the southeast on Monday, with cooler and drier
air to follow early next week.
