Cooler temperatures today behind yesterday's cold front. A steady breeze out of the northwest will drag in cooler and drier air. That will also mean some chilly temperatures tonight into Friday morning in the 40s.

LOOKING AHEAD

Sunny skies will continue into Friday with highs in the 70s. Our next system will drag a warm front north Friday night into Saturday morning bringing scattered showers mainly across NW Arkansas with lower rain chances further south.

Right now it looks like we will see a break in the rain chances Saturday afternoon into Sunday morning. A cold front will then roll in Sunday afternoon bringing rain showers and thunderstorms to finish the weekend, some of those storms could be strong to severe.

SEVERE STORMS SUNDAY

Severe storms will be possible Sunday afternoon and evening as the ingredients are coming together. We are still four days away so the exact details are unclear. Keep up to date with the latest forecasts for timing and strength of these storms.

FALL COLORS UPDATE

Peak conditions are being reported just north of Chicago. With some of the cooler nights ahead of us thanks to lower humidity, we should begin to accelerate our leaf change the next several days. We should get close to peak conditions in Arkansas in about 2-3 weeks.
