Wednesday, July 18, 2018 Yesterday was a repeat of the day before with scattered showers and thunderstorms moving across the state. Most of the activity was in the late afternoon and evening hours. Storms were slow moving so they dumped some heavy rainfall totals. I picked up 1.08″ of rain in about 90 minutes in Sherwood, but I did see … Read More

After a hot weekend where we saw high temperatures of 100 and 101 on Saturday and Sunday, we’ll see a little break in the heat over the next few days as a frontal system combines with a few upper-level disturbances to bring partly cloudy skies and scattered showers and thunderstorms.

Some of us got some rain yesterday which actually was a surprise. Storms in Oklahoma Sunday morning held together long enough to make it through parts of central Arkansas and dropped much-needed rainfall and lowered the temperatures quite a bit in the late afternoon. The temperature went from 95 to 72 in about an hour and a half yesterday afternoon … Read More

It’s going to be another hot one across the state today with the only exception being in some of the higher elevations of northern and western Arkansas. Central Arkansas temperatures should top out in the 97-98 range but a few locations will close in near 100. Tomorrow may be the hottest day of the year so far and Little Rock … Read More

We’ll have to watch the weather later this afternoon and evening as a cold front moves into the state and kicks off scattered showers and thunderstorms. Some of them could become severe with damaging wind and large hail the primary threat.

Afternoon thunderstorms were much more isolated yesterday than previous days but the ones that did develop dropped some very heavy rain in spots. Most areas of the state only saw partly cloudy skies with warm afternoon temperatures. Remember that term warm… This morning, skies are clear to partly cloudy with temperature in the 60s and low 70s. We’ll see mostly … Read More

We’re going to start the holiday weekend out with more of the same. Scattered afternoon and evening thunderstorms with high temperatures in the upper 80s to low 90s.

Showers and thunderstorms were scattered around the state Sunday and last night with a few severe storms noted in parts of northern AR including one tornado warning in NE Arkansas.

It’s a warm and humid morning across the Natural State. I like it but I know most do not… especially in May. A complex of showers and thunderstorms moved from Oklahoma into western Arkansas overnight and is forecast to weaken as it moves into western Arkansas during the morning, but another complex is forecast to develop in Oklahoma later today … Read More
