Short term Today through Tuesday
showers will continue across the forecast area as the upper level
low progresses eastward towards the mississippi river valley.
Current water vapor imagery shows this feature passing through
the natural state, which will keep chances of rain in the
forecast through the overnight and early Monday morning hours.
Wrap around moisture from the storm system will mainly impact the
eastern and northeastern portions of the state, therefore highest
chances reside across those locations. Additionally, as the storm
system moves through the region, elevated wind speeds between 10
and 15 mph with higher gusts up to 20 mph are possible.
A few stray showers could be seen on Monday, although only slight
chances are forecast, as the main forcing from the storm system
moves further east. Otherwise, dry weather is expected on Tuesday as
northwest flow and high pressure build back into the area. Mild
temperatures will persist through mid week with high in the 60s
and 70s, and lows in the upper 40s and 50s.
Long term Tuesday night through Sunday
an area of low pressure will be over the plains and east coast to
begin the long term period. The upper low in the plains moves
eastward Wednesday and through arkansas Thursday. High pressure|
builds over the rockies Wednesday through Friday, and will be over
the mid south next weekend.
A cold front will move through arkansas Tuesday night and Wednesday
with good chances of showers with isolated thunderstorms. High
pressure builds into the area late Wednesday night. Another cold
front will move through the state Friday and a bring a slight chance
of showers. Next weekend could actually be dry with high pressure
in place. Temperatures will be below normal through the period.

There are five sources. 1) Documents and manuals from a variety of sources. These have not been checked for accuracy and in many cases have not even been read by anyone associated with L-36.com. I have no idea of they are useful or accurate, I leave that to the reader. 2) Articles others have written and submitted. If you have questions on these, please contact the author. 3) Articles that represent my personal opinions. These are intended to promote thought and for entertainment. These are not intended to be fact, they are my opinions. 4) Small programs that generate result presented on a web page. Like any computer program, these may and in some cases do have errors. Almost all of these also make simplifying assumptions so they are not totally accurate even if there are no errors. Please verify all results. 5) Weather information is from numerious of sources and is presented automatically. It is not checked for accuracy either by anyone at L-36.com or by the source which is typically the US Government. See the NOAA web site for their disclaimer. Finally, tide and current data on this site is from 2007 and 2008 data bases, which may contain even older data. Changes in harbors due to building or dredging change tides and currents and for that reason many of the locations presented are no longer supported by newer data bases. For example, there is very little tidal current data in newer data bases so current data is likely wrong to some extent. This data is NOT FOR NAVIGATION. See the XTide disclaimer for details. In addition, tide and current are influenced by storms, river flow, and other factors beyond the ability of any predictive program.
