MainlyVFR with occasional MVFR conditions are anticipated
through the period. A cold front is near the missouri border and
good chances of thunderstorms are expected south of the front in
arkansas this afternoon. Expect a decrease at sunset... But there
could be redevelopment Friday morning. At this time, a line of
thunderstorms is developing from mena, to near little rock, to

overall,VFR conditions are expected through tonight. Isolated to
scattered showers and thunderstorms are expected today across the
region, with more widespread precipitation tonight in northern
sections of the state. Some low clouds MVFR conditions
will be noted where precipitation forms. Winds will vary from
southeast to southwest at 4 to 8 mph. (46)
short term... Today through Friday night
the heat is going to take a break in the near term as a big ridge
of high pressure builds well to the west, and a weak cold front
sags into arkansas from missouri. Behind the front, a fairly
strong surface high will head from the upper midwest to the ohio
valley, and will help force the front to the south.
With a boundary across the region, there will be good chances of
showers and thunderstorms today and Friday. Precipitation will
tend to focus around the front from northern into central sections
of the state.
There will likely be areas of heavy rainfall, with one to two inch
amounts in places. This could lead to localized flash flooding. A|
few severe storms are also possible, with strong to damaging
winds the main concern.
As far as the heat is concerned, will have maximum heat index
values from 100 to 105 degrees in central and southern sections
today. Heat indices could reach 100 degrees in the south on
Friday. Overall, the heat will be declining, with below average
temperatures in most areas on Friday.
Long term... Saturday through Wednesday
the forecast will remain unsettled through the weekend and into the
middle portions of the coming week. An initial quasi-stationary
frontal boundary draped across central portions of the state should
lift northward as a warm front this weekend and a shortwave trough
will drift into the area. This will keep rain chances in the
forecast through the weekend, as well as mostly cloudy skies. The
best chances for thunderstorms will be during the afternoon and
early evening hours, and while widespread severe weather is not
anticipated, we could see some strong thunderstorms.
Early next week we'll see another cold front move into the area in
conjunction with an h500 low near the great lakes region, and high
pressure once again retreating to the west and becoming more
amplified. This will bring northwesterly flow aloft back to the
natural state, and should help bring the aforementioned frontal
boundary well into the state. Additionally, expect cooler
temperatures and lower dew points in locations behind the frontal
Overall temperatures should be more pleasant than what we've seen
lately with high temperatures in the 80s across the north to lower
90s across the south, and lows in the upper 60s to lower 70s.

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.
