AVIATION. Updated for the 12Z TAF cycle
Low CIGS are on the increase from south to north as a warm front pushes northward across Arkansas. Developing low clouds will lead to morning drizzle then scattered afternoon showers across much of the region. A strong cold front will then enter the northern portion of the forecast area late in the TAF period bringing northerly winds, and lowering CIGS/VSBYS.
PREV DISCUSSION. (ISSUED 340 AM CST Sun Dec 15 2019) SHORT TERM . Today Through Monday For today, a warm front over southern Arkansas will move northward causing low clouds to develop and spread south to north in the wake of the progressive front. Despite a somewhat warmer airmass overspreading the forecast area, thick cloud cover will actually inhibit high temperatures enough that they will be held close to values reached Saturday afternoon. Today's highs will generally range from near 40 over the far north to the upper 60s over the far south. Lift and moisture convergence associated with the front, along with general upslope flow, will lead to the development of scattered morning drizzle and afternoon showers area-wide.
This evening, a strong cold front will begin to enter northern Arkansas and will progress southward through the night and into Monday. As the front moves farther south through the state, it will encounter greater instability that will lead to the development of isolated thunderstorms mainly after midnight tonight through Monday afternoon. The likelihood of severe weather with this front looks minimal at this time and most likely will be confined to the far southeast portion of forecast area Monday afternoon if any does occur. Highs Monday afternoon will range from near 40 over the far north to the mid 60s over the far south.
LONG TERM . Monday Night Through Saturday The extended period will begin with a storm system in the Tennessee Valley tracking away from Arkansas. Breezy northwest winds behind the system will usher in colder air. Moisture will linger Monday evening to yield mainly light rain north/east of Little Rock. Some snowflakes may mix with the rain in parts of the Ozark Mountains of the north, but no accumulation is expected.
High pressure will build over the region from the Plains Tuesday, with dry conditions through at least Thursday. Temperatures will be largely below average.
The high will exit to the east by Friday. Return flow/warm air advection will result in more clouds. At the same time, a fast moving storm system/cold front will bring small chances of showers. Temperatures will be closer to normal.
It will be dry again on Saturday. Air behind the aforementioned system will be from the Pacific instead of Canada, with seasonal temperatures continuing.

I have no idea of they are useful or accurate, I leave that to the reader. 2) Articles others have written and submitted.

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.
