Short term Today through Saturday night
it's been a rainy night early morning for the natural state which
has resulted in portions of the state receiving around 1 to 3 inches
of rain with locally higher amounts close to 4 inches. Latest
surface observations show temperatures in the upper 60s and lower 70s
across much of the state, with the far southern regions of the state
remaining in the upper 70s. The variance in temperatures is likely
due to ongoing convection resulting in cooler temperatures for the
majority of the state. Likewise and to be expected, relative
humidity values are rather high with much of the state seeing
percentages in the 90s.

Today we will likely see chances for rain continue as a frontal
boundary remains draped near the northern portions of the state.

This will provide a focus for additional convection throughout the
day, with scattered showers and thunderstorms becoming more
widespread through the afternoon hours due to diurnal influences and
lingering outflow boundaries from the overnight early morning
storms. This, along with partly to mostly cloudy skies, should
result in afternoon high temperatures in the upper 70s across the
north, mid to upper 80s across central arkansas, and lower 90s
across the south.

While widespread severe weather is not anticipated today, we could
see some strong thunderstorms, especially this afternoon and
evening. The main hazard however, will likely be the threat for
isolated areas of localized flash flooding. As mentioned above, a
frontal boundary across portions of northern arkansas could result
in persistent rainfall. Much of the activity should be scattered with
widespread rainfall amounts around an inch or less. It is worth
mentioning however, that some model guidance, especially the
convective allowing models, hints at the possibility of locally
higher amounts of rainfall near two or three inches across northern
portions of the state. Additionally, forecast pwat values above two
inches across the northwest could result in more efficient rainfall
producers, so this will be an area to monitor throughout the day.

The aforementioned frontal boundary will likely remain stationary
across northern portions of the state through Saturday morning,
moving further south late in the period when a shortwave trough
pushes eastward into the lower mississippi valley region. This will
result in additional chances for rain on Saturday, with cool high
temperatures once again. Expect MAX temperatures to range from the
upper 70s across the north to lower 90s across the south. Lows will
generally stay in the upper 60s to lower 70s through the weekend.

Long term Sunday through Wednesday night
fairly active long term is on tap with plenty of rain chances in the
forecast. Long term begins with a nearly stationary front draped
across the state which will lift back to the north. Aloft a ridge of
high pressure will be across the western CONUS and keep the state in
northwesterly flow. Models are generally in good agreement that a
new cold front will push into the state on Tuesday before becoming
parallel to the upper flow and stalling. By the end of the long
term, the models begin to diverge and at this point will tend to
lean towards the GFS and keep a bit of the wetter forecast.

With continued rain chances and significant cloud cover in the
forecast, temperatures through the long term will remain below

These have not been checked for accuracy and in many cases have not even been read by anyone associated with I have no idea of they are useful or accurate, I leave that to the reader. 2) Articles others have written and submitted. If you have questions on these, please contact the author. 3) Articles that represent my personal opinions. These are intended to promote thought and for entertainment. 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 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.
