WEATHER SUMMARY FOR ARKANSAS
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE LITTLE ROCK AR
914 PM CST Tue Jan 23 2018
High pressure dominated across Arkansas today with sunny skies for
just about everyone. Winds were still a little gusty behind a
departing storm system early in the day but diminished as the day
wore on. After a chilly start to the day, temperatures warmed into
the mid 40s to mid 50s.
At the 9 PM hour, skies were clear from border to border with
winds generally light and variable. Temperatures ranged from the
mid 30s to lower 40s. Low temperatures will fall into the upper
20s to lower 30s.
Dry conditions will continue through much of the week due to an
upper level ridge of high pressure slowly working its way across
the central U.S. Temperatures will be near seasonal for much of
the week with highs in the 50s and 60s and lows in the 30s.
Toward the weekend, a storm system associated with an upper level
trough and cold front will approach from the west and bring
scattered to numerous showers Friday night and Saturday. This does
not look like a big rainmaker, with precipitation amounts mostly
from a quarter to half an inch across Arkansas.
