Discussion...
a few showers could be possible this afternoon across northwest
Arkansas but relatively stable conditions from limited surface
heating/cloud cover will likely preclude any thunderstorm
development.

Weak surface ridging will remain over the area through the weekend
as long-wave trough over the eastern Continental U.S. Makes very slow eastward
progress. Slow warming trend will continue into the early part of
next week as weak upper ridge slowly builds into the region from the
Desert Southwest. At least a limited chance for showers/thunderstorms
by Thursday as upper wave rotates around periphery of high as northwest
flow aloft continues. Temperatures should remain near normal for
much of next week and forecast does not deviate significantly
from latest numerical guidance.
