Garrett’s Blog: Humidity & Heat Back By Wednesday

This is an archived article and the information in the article may be outdated. Please look at the time stamp on the story to see when it was last updated.

After an incredible Saturday, we’ll see a few more clouds creep into the area by Sunday; still a great day with low humidity & chilly morning lows.

The heat and humidity will be slower to return but expect a warming trend next week with the muggy weather back by Wednesday.

The ridge will weaken allowing a front to slowly push into the area late-week; so I would expect rain chances to creep back into the area by Friday and into next weekend.

Morning temperatures on Sunday will range from the 40s in Northwest Arkansas to low 50s in the River Valley.

We’ll see a few more clouds Sunday as the pattern changes to more of a southwesterly flow allowing more humidity to flow back towards us in the coming days.

Check out the following images for the dewpoint. Dewpoint is a measure of how much moisture is in the atmosphere. Dewpoints in the mid 60s and higher feel uncomfortable & sticky while while dewpoints in the 40s and 50s feel pleasant and dry.

Sunday morning dewpoints are in the 40s to near 50º.

By Thursday morning, dewpoints are already back in the 60s with near 70º dewpoints just to the south so humidity will be all over the place by the end of next week.

Right now, it appears the front will linger in the area into next weekend so rain looks like a good possibility.
