AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE LITTLE ROCK AR
248 PM CDT WED AUG 20 2014

.SHORT TERM...TONIGHT THROUGH SATURDAY NIGHT
THE UPPER HIGH PRESSURE WILL CONTINUE TO BUILD OVER ARKANSAS THROUGH
THE END OF THE WEEK INTO THE WEEKEND. SUBSIDENCE WILL INCREASE OVER
THE AREA AND SUPPRESS MOST IF NOT ALL PRECIPITATION DEVELOPMENT.
WITH HIGH PRESSURE OVER THE AREA...TEMPERATURES WILL SLOWLY WARM.
HEAT INDEX VALUES WILL BE HIGHEST IN THE SOUTHEAST...WHERE THEY WILL
REACH 100 TO 105 DEGREES IN THE AFTERNOONS.

&&

.LONG TERM...SUNDAY THROUGH WEDNESDAY
UPPER LEVEL HIGH PRESSURE WILL BE HOLDING STRONG TO START THE PERIOD
OFF...WITH RESULTING HIGHS IN THE UPPER 90S FOR MOST AREAS SUNDAY
AND MONDAY. WITH SUCH HOT CONDITIONS...DESPITE HIGH PRESSURE
ALOFT...WOULD NOT BE SURPRISED TO SEE AN ISOLATED THUNDERSTORM OR
TWO THOUGH RAIN WILL BE KEPT FROM THE FORECAST.

THERE IS A GOOD DEAL OF UNCERTAINTY IN THE EVOLUTION OF THE UPPER
LEVEL PATTERN TUESDAY INTO WEDNESDAY...THOUGH IT SEEMS IT WILL HAVE
LITTLE CONSEQUENCE ON ARKANSAS WEATHER THROUGH THE END OF THE LONG
TERM PERIOD. THE UPPER LEVEL RIDGE WILL WEAKEN TUE AND WED AND ALLOW
A BIT MORE MOISTURE TO WORK INTO THE STATE FROM THE SOUTH...THUS
YIELDING SOME SLIGHT CHANCES FOR SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS BOTH
AFTERNOONS.
