This Summer has certainly been an unusual one, with only a handful of very hot days so far. The temperature in Little Rock has only hit 95 degrees 3 times so far this Summer. For comparison, the temperature in Little Rock hit 95 degrees over 40 times by this time in the Summer in 2011! The cool trend continues as highs remain much below normal for the middle of this week. Clouds and showers will keep highs barely from getting to 80 on Wednesday, with highs likely staying in the 70s Thursday.

The record for the coolest high temperature Thursday is only 74, and if the clouds and showers hang on to the afternoon, the record may be broken for Little Rock. A slow warm up begins by the end of the week, but temperatures remain well below average.

Rain will approach by Wednesday afternoon with mainly just a few light showers, but a couple of isolated heavier showers are also possible. Strong storms are not expected. Most of the rain will move through overnight Wednesday into early Thursday.

Some showers will linger into Thursday afternoon, but lingering clouds will keep temperatures in the 70s.
