Gusty south and southwest winds were common across Arkansas last
night and early this morning. These winds brought unseasonably mild
air into the region, as noted by temperatures this morning. Predawn
readings ranged from the upper 60s to the lower 70s.

The gusty winds were associated with a cold front that was located
to the northwest of Arkansas this morning. The front will push
through the state today, with winds shifting to the northwest. Gusts
could exceed 40 mph in places. Wind and Lake Wind Advisories remain
in effect today for much of the area.

Not much precipitation is expected with the front. Scattered
showers, and maybe a thunderstorm or two, will accompany the front
through the early afternoon hours. Eastern Arkansas will actually
have the best chance of seeing rainfall today.

As far as temperatures, highs today will be in the mid 60s to mid
70s. The northwest half of Arkansas will likely see their respective
highs occur this morning ahead of the cold front, with the mercury
slowly falling as the day progresses.

Winds will decrease tonight as the front moves away from the state.
Drier and calmer conditions will follow on Sunday into early next
week, with cooler and more seasonal temperatures in the forecast.
