.PREV DISCUSSION...(ISSUED 350 AM CST Sun Nov 19 2017)
SHORT TERM...Today through Monday Night

What a difference 24 hours makes. This time yesterday mrng we were
dealing with springlike temps in the 60s and lower 70s. Meanwhile,
this mrng predawn readings ranged from the mid 30s to mid 40s, a
good 25 to 35 degrees colder!

After a very windy day on Sat, winds subsided overnight as high pres
settled into the region. We will see a couple of quiet days acrs AR
as high pres stays in control over the Mid-South. The high center is
fcst to shift EWD, passing ovr AR tngt. As the high shifts further
to the E, south winds/milder air wl return for Mon and Mon Night.
Low lvl moisture wl start to advect NWD late in the PD, more so
though heading into the long term.

LONG TERM...Tuesday through Saturday

A shortwave trough will move southeast over Arkansas on Tuesday and
send another cold front southeast across the state. Dry air in place
out ahead of the front and shortwave trough should prevent any
precipitation from developing...so maintained a dry forecast at this
time. The reinforcing shot of cool, dry air will help keep
relatively cool temperatures in place across the state for the
remainder of the week. Highs are expected to top out in the 50s on
Wednesday and Thursday...with temperatures warming into the lower to
mid 60s again on Friday. Lows will likely fall to freezing or below
Wednesday and Thursday mornings under mostly clear skies. Another
cold front is expected to move across Arkansas on Saturday...but
moisture is expected to be too limited to result in any significant
chance of rain. Temperatures are expected to remain near seasonal
normals next weekend with highs in the lower to mid 60s and lows in
the lower to mid 40s.
