SHORT TERM. Today Through Tuesday Night
Once again this mrng we are seeing extensive low cloud cover acrs the FA, along with some patchy fog and drizzle. This, combined with a N/NE sfc wind, has held temps fairly steady durg the overnight hrs, with predawn readings ranging fm the lower 40s to the lower 50s.
Model trends this mrng are still in decent agreement thru the PD. A closed upr lvl low is fcst to form ovr the SWRN states, allowing the flow pattern aloft to turn SWLY. Diverging flow aloft, aided by an incrs in lift/WAA pattern wl allow for rain to bcm widespread acrs the NW half of the area today and tngt. Look for a fairly sharp cutoff to PoPs off to the SE.
Rain chances wl diminish acrs much of the area heading into Tue as the aforementioned upr support shifts to the N of AR. The break in the rain wl be brief however, as TS Zeta works into the central Gulf and the upr low begins to lift out to the northeast. Thus, additional rainfall is expected heading into midweek.
LONG TERM. Wednesday Through Sunday
Not many changes were made to the long term portion of the forecast this morning as things seem largely on track through the period. Widespread rainfall is expected Wednesday into Thursday across much of the state, heavy at times, in advance of the approaching H500 cutoff low.
Widespread cloud cover will be seen and all but southeastern portions of the state will likely be dealing with temperatures several degrees below average. As the H500 low rotates its way across the state by Friday morning, a cold front will make quick progress across the area. Rain will come to an end and W-NW winds will increase quite a bit.
At this time, no POPs are mentioned for the upcoming weekend and temperatures look to remain at least a few degrees below average. Temperatures will be the coolest across northern Arkansas, but the threat of freezing temperatures looks low at this point.
LZK Watches/Warnings/Advisories. NONE.

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.
