Cool Weather on the Way, Storms Possible, Mainly in the South, but Severe Weather, Unlikely

The National Weather Service says a cold front over south central Arkansas will continue to push south and into northern Louisiana this morning. Scattered showers and isolated thunderstorms will be possible over the south until the front finally clears but severe weather is not anticipated at this time. Cooler and drier air will slowly overspread the state in the wake of the front.

Tranquil weather is expected to prevail through the middle of this work week with temperatures running several degrees below normal as northerly winds will prevail. The next chance of rain will be Wednesday night and into Thursday as a storm system moves in from the Southern Plains.

There are some differences between the models concerning the amount of precipitation that could fall with several inches of rain possible. The area most likely to see the heaviest rain would be over the southwest part of the state. Widespread severe weather does not appear likely.
