Area Forecast Discussion
National Weather Service Little Rock AR
627 AM CDT FRI OCT 21 2016

High pressure and clear skies will lead to VFR conditions through
the period.



SHORT TERM...Today Through Sunday
High pressure over the southwest U.S. will build eastward through
the period. This high will move to Arkansas by Saturday night and
will be centered in the eastern part of the Gulf of Mexico by Sunday

Surface high pressure will build over Arkansas today and will
continue over the state through Sunday. Sunny skies and cooler
conditions are expected through the period. Highs will be in the 60s
across the area today, lower 70s Saturday and upper 70s Sunday. Lows
will be in the lower 40s tonight and in the mid 40s to around 50
Saturday night.

LONG TERM...Sunday Night Through Thursday

The period will begin with a weak cold front passing through
Arkansas from the north. Moisture will be limited, so no
precipitation is expected.

A large area of high pressure will follow the front, and will cover
the eastern half of the country. As the period progresses, the high
will slide to the east, and winds around here will become more
southerly. This will result in above average temperatures. Moisture
levels will also slowly increase.

By Wednesday or so, a ripple of energy will slide from the central
Plains toward the mid-Mississippi and Ohio Valleys. Any ridging in
place will be flattened a bit temporarily. This will allow a new
cold front to approach from Missouri. Data is indicating the front
may not make it, but should be close enough to mention small chances
of precipitation.

It appears any rain will be north and west of Little Rock. In
general, this is a dry and mild forecast.
