Surface high pressure over the mid-Mississippi valley will remain in control of our weather today. After some patchy early morning fog around area lakes and rivers, we are looking at a sunny day with pleasant highs ranging from the middle 60s to around 70 degrees. Warmer temperatures will spread into northwest Arkansas on Friday as southerly winds increase across our area.

The chance for showers and thunderstorms will come late Friday night into Saturday as a fast moving cold front moves through. Moisture return out ahead of this system not overly impressive, so overall rainfall amounts should generally be relatively light.

It now appears as if much of Saturday afternoon through most if not all of Sunday should be dry, though southerly winds will ramp up ahead of a stronger weather system and another cold front. Shower and thunderstorm chances will increase late Sunday and continue into Sunday night, with chances diminishing from west to east during the morning hours Monday as the front clears the area. Breezy, but settled conditions will then build in across northwest Arkansas through the middle of next week.

...This Day in Weather History...

In 2007, strong thunderstorms winds of 70 to 90 mph caused wind damage across parts of northwest Arkansas.
