FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. – Tropical depression Harvey is lifting quickly northeast through Louisiana, and any rain bands are expected to remain east of the region Thursday.
The main impact will be a modest uptick in northeasterly winds, especially across western Arkansas. Otherwise, expect yet another pleasant day with highs back in the 80s.
A weak upper system is forecast to drop into the southern plains by Saturday, which may bring a few showers to parts of central Oklahoma and perhaps into eastern Oklahoma.
Expect a modest warming trend Sunday into Monday with highs returning closer to seasonal norms.
It still appears we’ll get our usual mid-to-late September strong cold front a few weeks early as a surge of cooler air moves into the region on Tuesday.
Afternoon highs are expected to fall back to the mid 70s and lower 80s range with morning lows in the 50s and lower 60s by mid-week.
