Weather Briefing created by: webmaster@nwarwx.com

The weather across northwest Arkansas this afternoon and tonight will be a welcome change from the past week. Five day rainfall totals ranged from five to nine inches at most locations across northwest Arkansas. This much rain caused widespread flash flooding and river flooding. Meanwhile, high pressure will be filtering in through the afternoon, this along with the sunny skies will see temperatures climb to around the 60 degree mark. Clear weather will continue tonight with lows dropping to around the freezing mark again, with clear skies remaining over our area.

High pressure will remain in control of our weather pattern to start the week with temperatures Monday and Tuesday around 60. A storm system will approach the area Tuesday evening and bring the next chance for rain and a few thunderstorms to northwest Arkansan's as we head into Wednesday. A low pressure system will move across Missouri Wednesday night and drag a cold front through northwest Arkansas. Rainfall amounts with this system from Tuesday night through Wednesday night look to be from a half inch to an inch. This may lead to some isolated flooding after the rains the past week, but confidence is rather low on this occurring at this time.

Behind Thursday's cold front, a dry air mass will move into northwest Arkansas and bring another period of nice weather to the area as we head into next weekend.

...This Day in Weather History...

In 2003, Snow fell statewide across Arkansas. Heavy snow fell across the central third of Arkansas, with four to eight inches common. Up to a foot of snow fell in some areas from just north of Mount Ida to near Perryville.
