WEATHER SUMMARY FOR ARKANSAS
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE LITTLE ROCK AR
1125 AM CDT TUE SEP 2 2014

WIDESPREAD SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS DEVELOPED ALONG A FRONTAL
BOUNDARY THAT WAS STRETCHED ACROSS SOUTHERN MISSOURI YESTERDAY
EVENING. THESE STORMS FORMED A LARGE COMPLEX OF RAIN AS THEY SLOWLY
MOVED SOUTH AND EAST DURING THE OVERNIGHT HOURS. PRECIPITATION
AMOUNTS SO FAR HAVE TYPICALLY BEEN BETWEEN A QUARTER TO AN
INCH...WITH ISOLATED AMOUNTS OF OVER ONE TO TWO INCHES ACROSS THE
FAR NORTHWEST.

THE COMPLEX OF STORMS WILL GENERALLY WEAKEN AS IT SLOWLY SHIFTS TO
THE SOUTH AND SOUTHEAST. AT THIS TIME...IT APPEARS THAT THE GREATEST
PRECIPITATION AMOUNTS WILL BE ACROSS THE NORTH AND WEST...WITH
SOUTHEASTERN AREAS RECEIVING LESS. THE WIDESPREAD RAINFALL AND CLOUD
COVER WILL SUPPRESS TEMPERATURES TODAY...WITH READINGS IN THE
NORTHERN HALF OF THE STATE RANGING IN THE 70S TO LOWER 80S. WARMER
TEMPERATURES WILL BE NOTED ACROSS THE SOUTH.

THE REMNANTS OF THIS COMPLEX AS WELL AS ANY DIURNALLY DRIVEN STORMS
WILL DISSIPATE LATER THIS EVENING AS SURFACE HIGH PRESSURE SLOWLY
BEGINS TO BUILD BACK IN. HOWEVER...SOME LINGER AREAS OF RAIN CANNOT
BE RULED OUT.

MEANWHILE...ANOTHER COMPLEX OF STORMS IS LIKELY TO DEVELOP AGAIN
OVERNIGHT AND INTO WEDNESDAY MORNING. HOWEVER...MUCH OF THIS
RAINFALL SHOULD BE MAINLY OVER NORTHEASTERN AREAS OF ARKANSAS. DRY
WEATHER WILL RETURN BY WEDNESDAY AFTERNOON THROUGH FRIDAY...ALTHOUGH
SMALL CHANCES FOR HIT AND MISS AFTERNOON SHOWERS WILL BE POSSIBLE.
TEMPERATURES WILL GRADUALLY WARM THROUGH THE END OF THE WEEK UNDER
THE HIGH PRESSURE SYSTEM.

LATE THIS WEEK AND INTO THE WEEKEND...ANOTHER CHANCE FOR
PRECIPITATION WILL OCCUR. A COLD FRONT WILL BRING WIDESPREAD
RAINFALL AND COOL AIR AS IT MOVES THROUGH THE STATE SOMETIME THIS
WEEKEND.
