WEATHER SUMMARY FOR ARKANSAS
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE LITTLE ROCK AR
425 PM CDT FRI OCT 21 2016
Fall temperatures were felt and a blue sky was seen by anybody who
was outside on Friday in the Natural State. Cold air continued to
filter in the state overnight... leading to one of the coldest, if
not the coldest, night of the season for Arkansas so far.
Temperatures ranged from 36 in Fayetteville to around 50 near the
Louisiana border. With abundant sunshine, temperatures were able to
rebound into the low 60s to low 70s for highs.
With high pressure in place over the Natural State, Friday night
will be another cool one...even colder than Thursday night. Clear
skies and calm winds will allow temperatures to fall into the 30s
and lower 40s once again. While temperatures are borderline, the
first frost of the season is possible across valley-type locations
in northern Arkansas, where cooler temperatures typically occur.
Southerly winds will return by late this weekend...with warmer
conditions to wrap up the weekend. No rainfall is expected through
early next week.
