Most of the weekend will be dry, breezy and mild ahead of a cold front which approaches by late Sunday. The highest threat of rain will come along with the front Sunday evening into Sunday night.
Some thunderstorms are likely along the leading edge of rain associated with the front. Even though widespread severe weather is not expected, some of the storms may produce some locally gusty winds as they approach. The Storm Prediction Center has indicated a SLIGHT risk for strong storms for most of Central Arkansas late Sunday.
The main risk associated with the storms will be some strong wind gusts. The rain may be heavy at times, but it will not last long enough to produce significant flooding. Given the lack individual storm cells ahead of the main line, the hail and tornado threat is quite low.
Significantly cooler air will move in behind the front late Sunday night and into the early part of next week with a return to more of a November feeling. High temperatures will drop from 70s over the weekend, to cool 50s by next week.
