Warm, moist air will surge Northward out of the Gulf of Mexico Saturday night into Sunday as a warm front moves through from the South. Southerly winds will overspread Arkansas by early in the week, bringing in the much warmer air.
A cold front will approach Arkansas by Tuesday. As the front moves into the warm, moist air accompanied by a strong jet stream aloft, potentially strong thunderstorms will develop.
There is some uncertainty regarding the next storm system for next week. Some of the models are showing a weaker front, which would lessen the threat of severe weather.
