Warmer, sunnier weather starting Thursday

With clearer skies and a light south wind, a warming trend is taking over into the weekend. Other than a stray shower Thursday evening, we'll be drier until Monday.

A series of systems providing clouds, flurries, and showers has for the most part left Arkansas and Oklahoma for the week, except for one final batch of light showers that may arrive Thursday night after 7PM. Otherwise a sunnier and warmer weather pattern is moving in. Highs will rebound to the 50s and 60s the next few days.


A quick clipper system in the High Plains may swing by the Ozarks late Thursday, providing a quick chance for a few sprinkles after sunset. Afterwards, more sunshine and warmth is expected.
