A cold front brings some cooler and drier air to start the week. A wet and cool finish for July in store for Central Arkansas. Highs Tuesday stay in the 80s, but clouds and showers around will keep highs only in the 70s in many spots Wednesday and Thursday. Temperatures won't hit 90 again until next week. The average high this time of year is in the lower 90s.  Mostly clear skies this evening, but a few clouds with an approaching disturbance over Oklahoma. An upper air disturbance over the Northwest will swing down by Wednesday bringing the threat of rain back for early next week. Temperatures are cooler than this time yesterday in the mid to upper 80s. The big difference is the humidity though, which is much lower following the cold front that moved through last night. Heat index values across the area are about 20 degrees cooler than this time yesterday. With drier air in place, tonight will be fairly comfortable as lows drop into the 60s. Skies stay clear overnight with just a few clouds approaching from the West on Tuesday. Humidity stays low which will keep a relatively pleasant feel to the air. A disturbance approaching from the West brings some showers into the area by Wednesday afternoon or evening. Rain is likely Wednesday night into Thursday morning as the disturbance moves by. Temperatures will be unusually cool North of the front with the clouds and showers around. Many spots will stay in the 70s for highs. Rain will begin to diminish on Thursday afternoon.
