Good Tuesday morning, it’s a comfy start outside with temperatures sitting in the 60’s in Arkansas and lower 70’s through north Louisiana. We are dry and cloudy and will see those temperatures warm up this afternoon. Highs will be around the 90 degree mark with cloudy skies this afternoon, and there will be a slight chance for a shower late this afternoon and into the evening. Winds will be out of the northeast and breezy, up to 15 mph.
Overnight we will see the chance for rain continue. Showers will be isolated and skies will stay cloudy. Low temperatures will drop down near 70 degrees with winds from the northeast.
Tomorrow we will begin to see those increasing rain chances as a result of Potential Tropical Cyclone #3. More showers and some t’storms will begin to move onshore as this tropical system approaches the TX/LA coastline Wednesday. For Wednesday, a lot of the shower activity will remain scattered and south of I-20. Rain will be moderate to heavy at time, but the threat for any severe storms is low. Rain chances will increase into Thursday and Friday.
Most spots across the ArkLaMiss will likely receive 2-4″ of rainfall through the weekend. It will be moderate to heavy at times, and widespread later this week. Locally higher amounts are also expected, amounts higher than 4″. The main concern will be some localized flash flooding but the overall threat for severe weather is low. With weak, disorganized tropical systems such as this the biggest impacts are felt far away from the “center” of the storm, so it’s important to not pay much attention to the track but to know the impacts.
