Area Forecast Discussion...Updated for Aviation
National Weather Service Little Rock AR
540 AM CDT Tue May 23 2017

.AVIATION...
There will be plenty of clouds today and tonight, but
conditions should be mostly VFR. Some low clouds/areas
of MVFR conditions will be noted in southeast Arkansas
this morning.

Isolated to scattered showers and a few thunderstorms
will pop up today, mainly this afternoon and evening.
This will happen as a cold front passes through the state
from the Plains.

Winds today will be west/northwest at 6 to 12 mph. (46)
&&

.SHORT TERM...Today Through Wednesday Night
A cold front will arrive from the Plains today, and will
bring isolated to scattered showers and a few thunderstorms.
The latest simulated radar indicates little in the way
of rain this morning, with precipitation developing more
readily this afternoon and evening.

The front will exit the region to the east tonight, but will
be followed by a strong storm system aloft from the upper
Midwest. The system will be over Arkansas on Wednesday, with
continued chances of showers/spotty thunderstorms.

There will not be much precipitation the next couple of
days. Some quarter to half inch amounts are possible
over the southeast half of the state.

Temperatures during the near term will be below average.
&&

.LONG TERM...Thursday Through Monday
Airmass will be moderating toward the end of the week, as high
pressure at the surface shifts eastward. Surface low pressure will
deepen in the southern plains and drag a cold front into the region.
With upper flow flattening out, the front will slow down. Several
waves will move through and interact with the front, with a
continued chance of showers and thunderstorms into the early part of
next week.
