Weather Summary for Arkansas 
National Weather Service Little Rock AR 
531 AM CDT Wed Mar 21 2018

Temperatures yesterday afternoon remained below average across
much of the state, with highs in the low-to-mid 50s across
northern Arkansas and low 60s in far southern portions of the
state. Lingering moisture on the backside of a departing weather 
system brought cloud cover and light showers to much of central
and northern Arkansas.

Going forward this week, an upper level ridge will move into the 
region over the next several days. At the surface, high pressure 
will settle over the area for much of the week. Clear skies will 
return to the state for several days. High temperatures on 
Wednesday will be cool with readings in the 50s and 60s, along 
with breezy northwesterly winds.

Looking ahead to later in the week, temperatures will warm as high
pressure slides eastward and southerly winds return. High
temperatures on Thursday and Friday will be in the 60s and 70s. 

A new storm system will approach the state by the weekend, with 
showers and thunderstorms returning to the forecast. Highs will be
in the 70s with lows in the 50s and 60s. Unsettled weather will 
continue into the start of next work week with heavy rainfall
possible through next week.
