A ridge of high pressure has been building heat across Arkansas and Oklahoma, and will continue to do so for the next few days. However, relief from that heat may come sooner than later.

Next week will start hot and humid (Monday-Wednesday). However a weak cold front will swing through Wednesday night and cool us down a bit (Thursday-Friday), an also bring in a bit drier air.

WEATHER SET UP

The ridge of high pressure will be centered over the Ozarks the first half of the week, keeping things hot and humid. However, by the second half of the week, the ridge will slowly retrograde westward. That will allow a cold front to push through the NW Flow, which will allow slightly cooler and drier air to filter south throughout Arkansas.
