AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION  
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE LITTLE ROCK AR  
245 PM CDT TUE JUL 14 2020  
   
SHORT TERM...TONIGHT THRU THURSDAY
 
 
THE UPPER LEVEL RIDGE OF HIGH PRESSURE THAT HAS BEEN PRESENT ACROSS  
THE AREA WILL PERSIST THRU THE SHORT TERM PERIOD, ALTHOUGH IT WILL  
FLATTEN OUT ACROSS THE MIDSECTION OF THE COUNTRY.  
 
DEWPOINTS WILL REMAIN QUITE HIGH, AND MAX TEMPERATURES EACH DAY WILL  
REMAIN QUITE WARM. WITH THAT IN MIND I WILL ISSUE A HEAT ADVISORY  
FOR TOMORROW, AND WILL EXTEND IT TO THE NORTHEASTERN COUNTIES,  
KEEPING ONLY THE HIGHER TERRAIN OF THE NORTH OUT OF IT.  
 
DRY WEATHER WILL PREVAIL ACROSS MOST AREAS, ALTHOUGH A SHORTWAVE  
TRANSITIONING THE RIDGE ON THURSDAY SHOULD BRING SOME SCATTERED  
THUNDERSTORMS TO THE NORTH, WITH ISOLATED ACTIVITY ELSEWHERE.  
 

 
   
EXTENDED TERM...THURSDAY NIGHT THRU TUESDAY
 
 
THE LONG TERM PORTION OF THE FORECAST WILL BE DOMINATED BY HIGH  
PRESSURE WHICH WILL PROVIDE MOSTLY DRY CONDITIONS AND ABOVE AVERAGE  
TEMPERATURES FOR MUCH OF THE FORECAST AREA. SOME INTRUSION BY A WEAK  
FRONT MAY BE SEEN ACROSS NORTHERN PORTIONS OF THE STATE AT THE  
BEGINNING OF THE PERIOD, BUT OTHERWISE LITTLE TO NO RAIN IS  
EXPECTED.  
 
WHILE AVERAGE TEMPERATURES FOR MID TO LATE JULY RANGE FROM THE UPPER  
80S TO MID 90S F ACROSS THE STATE, WITH THE H500 HIGH SITUATED OVER  
THE REGION THESE VALUES WILL LIKELY BE EXCEEDED. TD VALUES IN THE  
UPPER 60S TO UPPER 70S F WILL REMAIN IN PLACE AND WHEN COMBINED WITH  
HIGHS IN THE 90S F, HEAT INDICES WILL APPROACH OR EXCEED 105 AT  
TIMES.
