Cooler conditions will occur this afternoon and tonight as highs warm into the low to mid 60s this afternoon. High pressure will start to move east into northwest Arkansas tonight into Saturday with clear skies and decreasing winds. Lows tonight will generally drop into the upper 30s to the lower 40s. Valleys and wind sheltered areas could see lows fall into the middle 30s and some patchy frost may be able to develop tonight into early Saturday morning.

An upper level ridge of high pressure will build east across the plains on Saturday and will move over the area Sunday into early next week. Warmer conditions will spread back into northwest Arkansas, as highs warm into the upper 60s to lower 70s Saturday and then the upper 70s into the lower 80s Sunday and Monday. An upper level disturbance will track out of the central plains into Missouri Sunday night into Monday. A few showers and thunderstorms may be possible with this feature, but overall the better chances should remain north of our area.

A stronger weather system will move south across the west coast this weekend and into the southwestern U.S. early next week. The weather system will then slowly track east next week. A more active pattern will setup through much of the week in southwest flow aloft with intermittent chances for showers and thunderstorms. It will not be a complete wash out by any means, but with the weather system to the southwest, showers and thunderstorms will be possible just about every day. At this time do not see a signal for widespread heavy rainfall. Overall, temperatures will be on the mild side with highs in the 60s and lower 70s and lows mainly in the 50s.
