The cooler air is here and will stay with us this weekend.

Below average temperatures will cause cool days and chilly nights.

Our second cold front of the week passed through the area yesterday evening. Now cooler temperatures will stay with us into the weekend.

Another sunny day with highs in the upper 60s to low 70s today. Winds will be breezy from the north this afternoon. 

It's going to get chilly tonight! By tomorrow morning parts of NW Arkansas will see lows in the upper 30s. That is cold enough for areas of spotty frost. If you have any sensitive plants it's probably a good idea to cover them up or bring them inside tonight. For the River Valley temperatures will be too warm to worry about frost with lows in the middle 40s.

Highs tomorrow will hold in the 60s with lots of sunshine once again.

Looking ahead, clouds will increase for Saturday with some light rain showers possible. More sunshine will return on Sunday.
