Area Weather Summary for Northwest Arkansas
Last Updated at 4:30 p.m. cdt Saturday, September 26, 2020

The main weather focus revolves around the strong cold front set to move through Northwest Arkansas around sunset Sunday, particularly the potential for a few strong thunderstorms. Meanwhile, unseasonably warm conditions will continue overnight into Sunday ahead of an approaching cold front. The front will surge southward as an upper level weather system moves into the northern tier of the U.S.. The main forecast challenge involves thunderstorm intensity along the front. The spc has maintained the marginal risk for severe thunderstorms late Sunday afternoon into Sunday evening across Northwest Arkansas. Most areas look to receive a good rainfall before it ends from northwest to southeast during the late evening through early Monday morning.

Much cooler and drier air will invade Northwest Arkansas behind the front, with highs Monday likely to be around 15 degrees cooler than Sunday in most spots. Temperatures will remain cool Tuesday before a warm up toward more normal levels Wednesday, immediately ahead of another cold front. This front will pass through without any precipitation, dropping temperatures for Thursday and Friday back to levels near those expected earlier in the week.
