Hot weather is expected across Arkansas again on Thursday with highs in the mid to upper 90s and heat index values of 100 to 110 degrees. Do you part to help beat the heat across Arkansas! Check your backseat before leaving your vehicle, and never leave people or pets in vehicles!!
We have one more day of heat on Thursday before relief begins with a cold front moving across the area on Friday. Friday will be cooler than Thursday, but the cooler and drier really sets in this weekend. Highs are expected to top out in the mid to upper 80s this weekend into early next week while lows fall into the mid-60s each night starting Saturday night/Sunday morning.
Isolated to scattered showers and thunderstorms are expected to primarily remain in northern Arkansas during the day on Thursday. Some of these storms may become strong, primarily posing threats of locally damaging winds, heavy rainfall, and cloud to ground lightning strikes. Storms are most likely during the afternoon hours of the day.
Showers and thunderstorms are expected to increase in coverage across Arkansas from north to south as a cold front moves across the state Thursday evening and overnight. Some of these storms may become strong, primarily posing threats of locally damaging winds, heavy rainfall, and cloud to ground lightning strikes. Storms are most likely just after sunset.
Heat indicies tomorrow will top out in the 105-110 range for much of the state, with the exception of the Ozarks.
Arkansas is in store for one more night of warm and muggy conditions, with overnight lows in the 70's. Tomorrow night will see a major change as showers and thunderstorms advance ahead of a cold front, which will bring cooler and drier air to the state for the weekend.
