A few showers for Monday afternoon

Partly cloudy skies will produce a few downpours across the area during the second half of the day. Pockets of sunshine and humidity will add to the heat.

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. — Heading into the first full week of June, there is no drastic change in the day to day forecast as we largely stay in the 80s with on-and-off showers. Monday will be no different as a few downpours are expected this afternoon across Northwest Arkansas and the River Valley and highs mainly in the upper 80s.

After dealing with above average temperatures and dew points in the 60s, we will eventually see some slightly cooler conditions by Friday. Northwest Arkansas and the River Valley will be back closer to average heading into next weekend.
