WARM WEEK CONTINUES

November is ending and December is arriving and the weather is staying the same, in fact it's feeling more like early fall with comfortable temperatures and plenty of sunshine. We will run roughly 15-20 degrees above normal this week in both Northwest Arkansas and the River Valley.

Rain will return by this coming weekend. Scattered showers will eventually be followed by cooler air. The fifties are likely to return next week.
