Weather Summary for Arkansas

507 AM CDT Sat Mar 24 2018
Southerly winds on Friday helped pull much warmer air into the
region with high temperatures reaching the upper 60s to mid 70s
despite plentiful cloud cover. 
At the 5 AM hour, our skies remain partly to mostly cloudy as 
southerly winds around 10 mph continue to pull in moisture from 
the Gulf of Mexico. A weak upper level disturbance moving across 
the north is kicking off a few light showers over the eastern and 
southern parts of the state. This precipitation should end by late
morning to early afternoon. Temperatures remain mild even at this
hour courtesy of those south winds with most areas still in the 
60s. Highs today will climb into the 70s to maybe 80 degrees 
A weak cold front will move across the state later today for a
continuing chance of showers. This boundary will stall to the
south of the state tonight before returning as a warm from later
on Sunday. This front will be the focus more some showers and
isolated thunderstorms Sunday night and Monday. 
After a cooler Sunday behind the aforementioned front, highs next
week will climb into the 70s with lows in the 50s and 60s. The
forecast will turn considerably wetter early next week as a slow
moving cold front brings rounds of potentially heavy rain to the 
state. Several inches of rain can not be ruled out.
