1053 AM CDT Sat Oct 20 2018

Most of the rain had exited the state by this morning, except for
some light showers across the far southeastern portions of
Arkansas. Temperatures were in the mid to upper 40s and 50s, with
winds generally out of the north. A cold front began to enter the
state from the northwest, and will continue moving through the 
region today.

Expect mostly dry conditions with clearing skies throughout the
day. Temperatures will be in the 60s and 70s for highs, and lows
will be in the 30s and 40s. Due to the cold temperatures overnight
tonight, expect to see some patchy frost in areas, especially
across the northern sections of the state. Temperatures will be
similar on Monday, but gradually increasing through midweek.

The next chance for rain will be midweek, as another storm system
and frontal boundary approach and move through the area.
