WEATHER SUMMARY FOR ARKANSAS
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE LITTLE ROCK AR
525 AM CDT Sat Apr 29 2017

Across Arkansas, skies were mostly cloudy early this morning, with
an area of showers and thunderstorms over northwest Arkansas, and a
small area of showers over western spots. Overnight, a few severe
storms were seen over northwest Arkansas, with damaging winds and
large hail being report. A warm front had lifted northward to
where a sagging weak cold front was over far northern Arkansas. Today
the nearly stationary frontal boundary will be the focus for showers
and thunderstorms, as upper level energy moves across the region and
produces the potential for isolated strong to severe storms early in
the day. Later Saturday to Saturday night, an upper system and cold
front move through the region, and again produce strong to severe
storms over much of Arkansas. Damaging winds, large hail and
isolated tornadoes will be possible. After morning lows in the 60s
and 70s, highs on Saturday will reach the 70s and 80s.

The threat of heavy rain will be seen today and tonight, with
several inches of rain being possible, especially over the northern
half of the state.  Flash flooding and river flooding will be
possible, and area residents need to follow the weather very closely
this weekend, due the severe storm and flash and river flooding
potential.

Now is a good time to review your severe weather safety rules. Stay
informed by monitoring the latest weather forecasts, updates and
outlooks from your National Weather Service forecast office.
