Area Forecast Discussion . UPDATED National Weather Service Little Rock AR 1141 AM CST Mon Jan 25 2021
Updated to include the 18Z aviation discussion.
TSRA remains possible at central/southern terminals through around 25/21Z before convection pushes east of the area. For the remainder of the period, clouds will begin scattering out for most terminals this afternoon, although lingering clouds could affect HRO and perhaps BPK through tonight. Gusty S/SW winds will subside and veer to the WSW with VFR prevailing at most terminals by 26/00Z.
PREV DISCUSSION. (ISSUED 415 AM CST Mon Jan 25 2021)
SHORT TERM . Today Through Tuesday Night
A dvlpg sfc low was centered to our W early this mrng, in the vcnty of the Red River, with a warm fnt extending to the E acrs Srn AR. Meanwhile, the assocd upr lvl low was located ovr Nrn NM. Most of the rainfall this mrng was concentrated acrs Wrn and N AR, with patchy light rain and areas of dense fog noted elsewhere. Based on latest ob trends, have issued a Dense Fog Advisory for parts of central and southeast AR thru the mid mrng hrs. Conds wl improve soon aft the warm fnt passes, as sfc winds incrs fm the S.
Elevated convection wl cont to affect locations along and north of the advancing warm fnt, with marginally svr hail still possible with some stronger storms. Meanwhile, a CDFNT is expected to quickly move thru the FA this aftn as the sfc low heads acrs Srn MO. Ahead of the fnt, much of the FA wl be situated in the warm sector, as sfc temps warm into the 60s and lower 70s. Cannot rule out a few strong/svr storms along and ahead of the CDFNT, with hail and damaging winds the main concerns.
Rain will quickly end fm the W later today as much drier air advects into the region behind the FROPA. A persistent SW flow aloft wl allow for a weak impulse to pass SE of AR late Tue, with some incrs in clouds expected, followed by some cooler air.
Yet another upr trof wl apch the area later Tue ngt. Clouds wl incrs, along with small precip chcs ovr Wrn AR. Temp profiles show that a rain/snow mix wl be possible. Not expected much in the way of impacts as sfc temps are expected to rmn abv 32F. Models have trended a bit drier with this sys, resulting in lower QPF amts.
LONG TERM . Wednesday Through Sunday
An upper trough will be in the Plains to begin the long term period with southwest flow over the mid south. The upper trough moves through Arkansas Wednesday and ridging builds over the Rockies. The ridge moves into the Plains Thursday and to the east coast Saturday. A weak trough moves through Arkansas Saturday night and another ridge builds over the Rockies Sunday, providing northwest flow over Arkansas.
A surface low will bring another cold front and a chance of rain Wednesday. Some snow may mix with the rain in the morning north. Any accumulations will be light. Rain chances will diminish in the afternoon as a large area of high pressure rushes into Arkansas and continues over the area Thursday and Friday. A warm front moves into the Plains Friday and moisture will return to Arkansas Friday night with rain chances increasing. Rain chances continue to increase on Saturday, then decrease Saturday night. Sunday is expected to be dry. Temperatures will be below normal Wednesday and Thursday then a warming trend begins Friday.

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 numerous 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.
