Weather Summary for Arkansas 
National Weather Service Little Rock AR 
424 PM CDT Fri Apr 20 2018

It was a dry, cool day across the Natural State as temperatures
warmed from the 30s and 40s Friday morning to the 60s by the late
afternoon hours.

High pressure is expected to slide eastward, allowed for southerly
winds to bring warmer, moister air into the region over the next
day ahead of an approaching low pressure system. Friday night lows
will be warmer than the previous night, with temperatures expected
in the 40s. Chances of precipitation return Saturday afternoon as
the aforementioned low pressure system approaches.

Rain will continue into Sunday. It appears as though some areas 
of central and southern Arkansas could be in for one to two inches
of rainfall Saturday night into Sunday. Rain chances will 
decrease by Monday.
