A cold front will sweep into Arkansas Thursday with a few showers and thunderstorms likely. Most of the showers will be somewhat ahead of the front, moving through during the late morning into the early afternoon.
A few of the storms may be strong with isolated hail and some gusty winds the main threat. Below is the severe outlook from the Storm Prediction Center, showing a SLIGHT risk for parts of Arkansas.
Most showers and storms will push into Eastern and Southeast Arkansas during the late afternoon and exit the State by later in the evening.
Cooler, less humid air follows the front for the end of the week. Friday will be considerably cooler and less humid with highs in the 70s.
Low temperatures Saturday morning will even dip into the 50s, but the cool air won't stick around for long. Highs return to the 90s by early next week.
