Weather Summary for Arkansas
National Weather Service Little Rock AR
845 PM CDT Sun Oct 21 2018

It was a beautiful day across the Natural State, with mostly clear
skies and cool temperatures. Morning temperatures started off in 
the lower 30s and 40s, but rose into the upper 50s and 60s for 
highs.

Clear skies will hold overnight, and as a result, we may see our 
coldest night of the season so far. Temperatures will fall into 
the 30s state wide with below freezing temperatures possible in 
northwest Arkansas, and temperatures cold enough for frost across 
much of the Ozark and Ouachita mountains.

Temperatures will slowly warm up heading into the new work week. 
The next chance for rain will be mid to late this upcoming week, 
as another storm system and frontal boundary approach and move 
through the area.
