.PREV DISCUSSION... /Issued 353 AM CDT Wed May 24 2017/

DISCUSSION...
An upper low over southern Iowa early this morning will move
south into northeast Arkansas by this evening. This may result in
a few showers developing across far northwest Arkansas today, but
any rainfall amounts will be light. Cool temperatures for late May
will continue through tonight.

A quick return to more typical warm and humid late May weather
will take place Thursday and Friday. Shower and thunderstorm
chances will increase by late Friday into Saturday night as a
frontal boundary sags south into and through the area. The
greatest coverage of showers and storms will likely be in the
eastern part of the forecast area, with a stouter cap farther west
making storm development less certain. A few severe storms will be
possible during this time frame.

Dry weather with seasonable temperatures will prevail for the
latter half of the Holiday weekend, with low rain chances
returning by Tuesday and Wednesday.

Stayed close to guidance temperatures the next couple days.
