The Heat Is On.....
Well once again we didn't warm up as much as models were showing and part of that may be the amount of moisture in the ground in central AR (per NWS discussion) which makes sense and drier air aloft is working down to the surface during the afternoon keeping the heat index values from getting out of hand.
But....as we continue to dry out, temps will warm and we're already a few degrees warmer this morning than the past few days so temps this afternoon may actually get into the mid 90's with upper 90's over the weekend with Sunday/Monday being the hottest days (temps may get close to 100 in some locations)
We may get a frontal system to move through next week knocking temps back down to near or slightly below normal and bring a chance of rain.
With high pressure over the state, the only rain will come from isolated afternoon thunderstorms and isolated is being gracious....
No organized severe weather is expected over AR today but an isolated strong or severe storm is possible with any afternoon activity that develops.
