Weather Summary for Arkansas
National Weather Service Little Rock AR
1208 PM CST Sat Feb 16 2019

It was a cold and cloudy start to the day across the Natural 
State, with low temperatures in the 20s and 30s. Highs today
should remain on the chilly side, with mid to upper 30s across the
north and lower to mid 40s across the south. Light rain is
possible through the evening and overnight hours, but shouldn't
amount to much. Additionally, with temperatures near or just below
freezing through that time period, we could see some of the
precipitation turn into the freezing drizzle or freezing rain for
a short period. 

We'll finish off the weekend with dry weather, but rain chances
will return early during the week, possibly bringing widespread
rainfall to the state.
