306 am cdt Thu mar 30 2017
Short term Today through Friday night
most of the CWA is dry early this Thu morning... Though some
shra/tsra continue across the far sern counties and some nern
counties. However... All activity remains sub-svr at this time. A
cold front has pushed east into WRN ar... Which will continue to move
east through the morning hrs.
Have lingering pops in the forecast for the ongoing convection and
any additional shra/tsra that develop along and ahead of this front
through this morning. Then have precip chances decreasing by this
afternoon as the front moves east of the state. The overall svr wx
threat has diminished early this morning... But could still see an
isolated strong to svr storm before the front pushes through.
Keep some pops across the NRN and nwrn counties this afternoon as
wrap around moisture should generate some shra. This wrap around
moisture will also keep clouds overhead across the NRN and nwrn
counties... Which should keep temps down in the 50s this afternoon.
Further south and se... Expect at least some clearing and warmer
temps in the 60s and even some 70s.
The storm system will exit the region by tonight... With dry
conditions expected cwa-wide through the end of the short term
period. The rainfall potential will return over the weekend.
Long term Saturday through Wednesday
upper ridging will briefly build over the central gulf coast region
Saturday. This will amplify the flow, pushing a stalled frontal
boundary back to the north as a warm front Saturday night or early
Sunday. At the same time, a negatively tilted upper trough will
eject out of the southwest, and interact with the front. This will|
allow for showers and thunderstorms to become likely during the day
Fairly widespread showers/storms should continue Sunday night into
Monday, as a surface low and closed off upper low move into southern
arkansas. Could be some strong storms, but this will all depend on
how far north the warm sector advances into arkansas. With the
decent influx of gulf and pacific moisture into the region, heavy
rain could become a concern. However, the fairly quick motion of the
systems should preclude any widespread problems.
The surface and upper system will depart Monday night, but return
flow will set up quickly by Tuesday, as southwest upper flow
develops again, and surface low pressure strengthens in lee of the
rockies. Scattered showers/storms will return to the forecast by mid-
week, as the surface low drags a cold front into the region.

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.
