After a soaked a hot, dry, but humid June, July is likely to set up nearly the same across the Ozarks and Ouchitas. Storm development will be most likely in the Deep South and the High Plains.
JULY: WHAT IS NORMAL?
-High Temperatures: Upper 80s - Low 90s
-Low Temperatures: Near 70
-Rainfall: ~3 inches
Most of the nation is looking warmer this month as an earlier-than-normal high pressure ridge sets up across the Plains.
Arkansas: Much Warmer
The high pressure ridge will lead to more sinking air and less chances for showers and storms to develop. Overnight complexes of storms are still possible, along with a stray afternoon pop-up, July is likely to be quiet across Arkansas.
Arkansas: Slightly Drier
We are slowly losing daylight throughout the month of July.
