Weather Blog: Rain to end the week, nice weekend ahead

Weather Talk

The flash flood watch has been canceled as most activity has weakened or diminished altogether.

Upper low currently centered across Arkansas this morning will continue to push off to the
east. There will still be enough influence from the upper low for scattered storm development this afternoon, however, aerial coverage will be lower.

A little, fast storm motion is expected, so that should translate to lesser rainfall amounts where convection occurs. The upper low/trough will drift around the eastern third of the U.S through the weekend before some of it gets absorbed by a fast-moving northern stream wave early next week.

This upper trough will send a reinforcing shot of surface high pressure towards the region, resulting in several days next week of north to northeast winds along with cooler temperatures. Next front to
approach the middle of next week which at this time will offer low rain chances across the area.

Dry conditions expected for the last portion of the work week, along with temperatures a few degrees below seasonal averages.
