Weather Summary for Arkansas
National Weather Service Little Rock AR
432 PM CDT Fri Jun 22 2018

A cold front remains over southern Arkansas at this time and was
largely responsible for rounds of strong to severe thunderstorms
both early this morning and then again mid afternoon. The storms
were aided by an upper level impulse and resulted in very heavy
rain and flash flooding as well.

At the 4 PM hour, the majority of the precipitation has pushed off
to the east of the state. Cloud cover remains extensive over the
far southeast with partly cloudy skies elsewhere. Temperatures
ranged from the mid 70s where the clouds persist and the rain
occurred earlier to the mid 90s in those areas that are mostly
sunny. Winds are from the west to northwest across the northern
part of the state with southerly winds along the Louisiana border.
Wind speeds are averaging under 10 mph.

For tonight and Saturday, a chance of showers and thunderstorms
will remain in the forecast, as the front remains over Arkansas,
and additional upper level energy moves across the region. Also
some threat of severe storms will also be possible. Lows will be
from the mid 60s to mid 70s. Highs Saturday will be in the mid
80s to lower 90s.

Sunday and into early next week, we will see the unsettled
weather pattern continue, bringing rain chances to the region.
High pressure and drier conditions will return Tuesday and beyond
with warmer temperatures.
