Clouds will be increasing across for Thursday and Friday with the best chance for rain on Friday with a front arriving from the north.

Rain will be quick to leave with clearing skies and much colder weather for the weekend.

A frost is possible Sunday morning and then again possible Monday morning.

Notice how in the Fort Smith area temperatures are already back into the upper 70s by next Tuesday with another front arriving around Wednesday into Thursday.

Our next chance for severe weather could possibly occur around the middle of next week.
