Monday, for the majority of us, will be dry and warm with partly cloudy skies. But, as more humidity moves in, a few pop-up storms from Oklahoma could survive into Arkansas. If you have outdoor plans on the lake or grilling with the family, keep an eye on the skies and the radar.

The likelihood for rain increases after Monday with afternoon showers and storms possible on Tuesday and Wednesday. These storms will be isolated in nature and will be more present during the late afternoon and into the evening.
