During the day, an upper level storm system and weak cold front were
making their way slowly toward Arkansas from the west. Widespread
cloud cover was observed across western areas, with some on and off
shower and thunderstorm activity seen as well. But, most of the rain
was south and just west of the state during the daylight hours. A
few scattered thunderstorms developed from roughly El Dorado to
Little Rock during the afternoon hours, but conditions across
central and eastern portions of the state were largely dry and warm.
Afternoon highs across western areas were in the 60s, with readings
across the rest of the state primarily in the mid to upper 70s.

As the evening progresses the upper level storm system and
associated front will finally shift east and make their way across
the state with more widespread rainfall expected. Rain won`t be very
heavy in many areas, with one quarter to one half inch amounts
common. Some places across southern and eastern areas could see
locally up to an inch. Overnight lows will only be in the 50s

Rain will begin exiting to the east on Tuesday, with dry and
springlike conditions expected for Wednesday and Thursday. A new
cold front will arrive from the west Thursday night and Friday. It
will be windy surrounding the front, with small chances for
thunderstorms in the forecast.
