Central Arkansas Forecast May 20-25 PDF Print E-mail
Written by Tim McNeill   

Between fall like temperatures and a moon so bright, it makes you want to howl. Our weather continues to be anything but normal. I honestly can’t remember being able to step outside, two weeks before Memorial Day and breathe fog.

Warmer temps and unsettled weather move back into the forecast this weekend. Severe weather is a possibility over the next few days. This system is slow moving, but shouldn't be a total rain-out.

The Natural State has several connections to Elvis. When he was first starting his career in the early 1950s, Arkansas provided many a location for his performances. Numerous communities across the state hosted the future King of Rock ’n’ Roll: Helena, West Memphis, Texarkana, Marianna, Augusta, Leachville, El Dorado and Dermott are just a few towns where Elvis sang. Little Rock, Camden, Hope, Pine Bluff, Newport...the list continues. Sadly, there are no monuments or markers denoting these historic appearances.

Some communities will have to contend with lingering water for several weeks as they attempt cleanup and recovery. Today, Interstate 40 opened in both directions, after the White River finally receded from the hwy bridge. This brings an end to the nightmare detour that travelers have faced when transversing the state. The Arkansas Hwy Department will continue to be overloaded, as they attempt to repair the state's washed out roads. Here is a four day look at your weather for this week:
