WEATHER SUMMARY FOR ARKANSAS
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE LITTLE ROCK AR
925 PM CDT MON AUG 3 2015

THERE WERE QUITE A FEW CLOUDS ON MONDAY...AND AN ISOLATED SHOWER
OR TWO IN NORTHERN ARKANSAS. HIGH TEMPERATURES WERE IN THE UPPER
80S TO AROUND 100 DEGREES...AND RANGED FROM 89 DEGREES AT
FAYETTEVILLE TO 100 DEGREES AT EL DORADO AND NEWPORT.

ON THE MONDAY EVENING WEATHER MAP...A RIDGE OF HIGH PRESSURE WAS
DRIFTING FROM THE SOUTHERN PLAINS TOWARD THE SOUTHWEST UNITED
STATES. WITH THE DEPARTURE OF THE HIGH...THE DOOR WAS OPENING
FOR AT LEAST SOME CHANCE OF SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS IN THE
COMING DAYS.

A FRONT TO THE NORTH WILL SLOWLY EDGE TOWARD THE REGION. AT
THE SAME TIME...STORM SYSTEMS WILL TRACK ALONG THE FRONT...AND
WILL TRIGGER PRECIPITATION.

AT THIS POINT...THE BEST CHANCES FOR APPRECIABLE RAIN WILL BE
OVER THE NORTHERN HALF OF ARKANSAS FROM TUESDAY NIGHT THROUGH
THURSDAY OR FRIDAY. SOME PLACES COULD PICK UP A HALF INCH TO
AN INCH AND A HALF OF PRECIPITATION...WITH LOCALLY OVER TWO
INCHES. SHOWERS WILL BE MORE SPOTTY FARTHER SOUTH.

MORE CLOUDS AND HIT AND MISS DOWNPOURS WILL KNOCK A COUPLE OF
DEGREES OFF OF DAYTIME TEMPERATURES. GIVEN MORE MOISTURE IN THE
AIR...NIGHTTIME READINGS WILL BE A TOUCH HIGHER.

BY THIS WEEKEND...IT APPEARS THE RIDGE OF HIGH PRESSURE WILL
BUILD BACK IN THIS DIRECTION. THE HEAT WILL RETURN...AND RAIN
CHANCES WILL BECOME MINIMAL.
