AVIATION. 27/12Z TAF CYCLE
Rain wl cont to affect N AR thru most of the mrng, then slowly taper off in the aftn. Widespread MVFR/IFR conds wl prevail thru the PD, with lower conds early this mrng in more persistent fog and drizzle. Some improvement wl be possible over SE AR later today and this evening. Rain chance wl return ovr cntrl and south AR later tonight, with PROB30 groups included for now. /44/
PREV DISCUSSION. (ISSUED 405 AM CDT Tue Oct 27 2020) SHORT TERM . Today Through Wednesday Night
Have seen a persistent area of rain and embedded thunder acrs roughly the NW half of the FA overnight and early this mrng. Patchy fog and some drizzle was noted elsewhere. Seeing about a 20 degree temp difference fm NW to SE ovr AR this mrng, with readings ranging fm the mid 30s to the mid 50s.
Rain chances ovr much of the FA wl gradually diminish as today progresses, as the best isentropic lift shifts to the NW of the FA. However, extensive low cloud cover wl persist ovr most of the area, once again limiting daytime heating.
The primary weather players the next few days wl be the EWD progression of a strong upr low, currently ovr SRN AZ, and the track of Hurricane Zeta. The upr low is progged to apch AR fm the west late in the PD, with Zeta making landfall along the NRN Gulf Coastal region Wed night, then lifting quickly to the NE.
Rain chances wl once again incrs acrs AR fm the S late tngt and over the rest of the area Wed ahead of the aforementioned upper low. A stalled fnt to the SE of AR wl be working N later Wed as a warm fnt and appears to at least make it into the SE part of the FA. Thus, high temps on Wed wl certainly be an additional challenge. Kept low chances for thunder in the fcst late Wed into Wed night. Any organized storm chances wl be limited due to very limited instability and more positive tilt to the upr lvl sys.
LONG TERM . Thursday Through Monday
The H500 low will be progressing east across the state at the start of the long term portion of the forecast. Corresponding rain chances will be in place across much of eastern and northern Arkansas, with southern/southwestern portions of the area drying out quickly. In the wake of the upper low and surface features, W-NW winds will increase across the state into early Friday morning. Some lingering moisture may provide for some light showers across northern portions of the forecast area, but by daybreak Friday all precip should be well to the east.
By Friday morning, as sfc ridging builds in from the west temperatures will be fairly cold across western and northern Arkansas. Localized areas could see temperatures near 32 F, but most areas will remain above the freezing mark. Frost doesn't look to be a concern with sustained sfc winds in the 5-8 mph range at least.
Through the weekend into early next week the H500 flow will remain out of the W-NW with another trough progressing east across areas well north of the state. A corresponding sfc cold front will move across the area with ridging building in its wake. Temps through the period are expected to remain below average and no POPs are in the forecast through the Halloween weekend into early next week.

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.
