AVIATION. VFR conditions will be noted tonight and Tuesday. Winds will be light/variable tonight, and northeast at 5 to 10 mph on Tuesday. (46)
SHORT TERM. Tonight Through Wednesday Latest surface observations show temperatures ranging from the 80s north to lower/mid 90s central and south, with a frontal boundary near the I-20 corridor of Northern Louisiana. Even though it's warm, there are some benefits of being to the southeast of a high pressure center . northeast/northerly surface flow has kept dewpoints low enough for conditions to be fairly tolerable.
While there could be an isolated storm or two near the boundary this afternoon and evening, it should be far enough away for little if any concerns for southeast Arkansas.
Zooming a bit further out on the regional scale, another backdoor front currently in north central/northeast Missouri will move south in meridional flow aloft, moving into Arkansas early Tuesday morning. Though it really won't bring much of a cooldown, it will reinforce drier dewpoints, which should act to keep heat indices in check.
LONG TERM. Wednesday Night Through Sunday Calm and dry conditions begin the period with high pressure present over the CWA with temperatures expected to be above normal. Highs looks to be in the upper 80s to low 90s with lows in the upper 60s to low 70s. It is expected that heat index values will remain fairly close to the temperature values thanks to lower RH values.
This summer-like pattern aided by the building ridge will lead to low PoPs across the CWA through at least the first half of the period. While I tend to agree that an inactive period will present itself through most of the period, it cannot be ruled out that a possible isolated shower will not pop up, especially later in the period and up in the northern portions of the CWA. Conditions will continue to be monitored for any possible changes to the forecast.
Looking toward the end of the period, mainly the weekend, PoPs increase again associated with high pressure moving east and a trough moving into the central plains. Models depict a possible weak cold front moving into N AR by Saturday morning before stalling. As this is happening, moisture from the disturbance in the Gulf of Mexico looks likely to surge north being pulled with the trough. At this point it's looking likely that the next chance of rain will come this weekend for the CWA. However, details for this next rain maker will have to continue to be worked out over the coming days.
