WEATHER SUMMARY FOR ARKANSAS
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE LITTLE ROCK AR
857 PM CDT TUE AUG 19 2014

A GENERALLY SUNNY SKY WAS SEEN ACROSS THE NATURAL STATE THIS 
TUESDAY...WITH SOME ISOLATED SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS DEVELOPING 
DURING THE HEATING OF THE AFTERNOON HOURS ACROSS PORTIONS OF THE 
STATE. HIGH TEMPERATURES WARMED WELL INTO THE 90S FOR MOST 
LOCATIONS...THOUGH SOME UPPER 80S WERE SEEN IN THE HIGHER TERRAIN. 
LATE THIS EVENING...ALL OF THE PRECIPITATION HAD ENDED...LEAVING A 
PARTLY CLOUDY TO MOSTLY CLEAR SKY. TEMPERATURES LATE THIS EVENING 
HAD DROPPED DOWN INTO THE MID 70S TO MID 80S. EXPECT A FAIR SKY TO 
PERSIST OVERNIGHT...WITH WEDNESDAY MORNING LOWS IN THE UPPER 60S TO 
MID 70S.  

FOR WEDNESDAY...A STRONG RIDGE OF HIGH PRESSURE WILL BUILD OVER THE 
REGION...WITH RAIN CHANCES MOSTLY ENDING. THE RIDGE WILL BRING HOT 
SUMMERTIME CONDITIONS TO THE REGION...AND TEMPERATURES COULD REACH 
NEAR 100 DEGREES BY FRIDAY AND INTO THE WEEKEND. WITH PLENTY OF 
MOISTURE IN PLACE...TEMPERATURES WILL FEEL RATHER UNCOMFORTABLE AND 
HEAT INDICES WILL BE AT OR ABOVE 105 DEGREES.

IT APPEARS THE RIDGE OF HIGH PRESSURE WILL BREAK DOWN BY THE MIDDLE 
OF NEXT WEEK...AND THAT WILL ALLOW A COLD FRONT TO APPROACH FROM THE 
NORTH...AND SHOULD END THE BRIEF HOT SPELL.
