SHORT TERM. Tonight Through Thursday
Upper low pressure continues over Oklahoma and Kansas and will only slowly move east through Thursday. This will lead to a continued moisture influx over the state and chances of showers and thunderstorms. A cold front moved through the state this morning and is now stalled in eastern Arkansas and is where showers have initiated. Showers and thunderstorms will be possible over the entire state however. Will continue the Flash Flood watch in its current state with no changes. Highs in the mid 70s to lower 80s are expected for Wednesday and Thursday.
LONG TERM. Thursday Night Through Tuesday After a little more in the way of light rain to begin the period, all the extended models agree that a much welcomed and needed drying trend will be forth coming. A general blend of models will be used for this afternoons forecast package.
Period initiates with our ever persistent upper low somewhere over eastern/northeast Arkansas or the Missouri bootheel, depending in which model you buy. In addition, there is a pronounced upper ridge building over the western United States. Rain chances will continue Thursday night and into early Friday but in a rather disorganized fashion. However, the actual rain amounts to not appear to be very excessive in this time frame.
An advancing cold front will finally kick the upper low to the east during the day Friday with much drier air coming in behind the front finally putting an end to the rain. The upper flow will turn to the northwest behind the front for cooler temperatures as well.
The aforementioned upper ridge will build over the area by late in the weekend/early next week with dry conditions expected for the remainder of the period. Temperatures will be slowly increasing to seasonal or even slightly above with time.

Almost all of these also make simplifying assumptions so they are not totally accurate even if there are no errors.

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.
