Evening forecast for Monday, May 21


An unsettled pattern will keep rain chances in the forecast for the ArkLaMiss most of this week, but better rain chances could be looming a few days out.

A weak cold front moving into central Arkansas this evening is expected to remain stalled over the central and southeastern United States over the coming days. It will provide a focus for daily, afternoon storms. While some storms could become severe, heavy rainfall will be the main hazard from any storm that develops.

A deeper swath of Gulf moisture is possible by the end of the weekend. While tropical development does not appear imminent, this disturbance will bring the potential for widespread (and at times, heavy) rainfall to parts of the Southeast early next week. While it’s too early to jump into specifics, stay up to date on this forecast going into the Memorial Day weekend.

Temperatures will stay consistent through the next week. Afternoon highs will remain in the low 90s, while morning lows hover close to 70°.
