Comfortably warm weather will continue this week with lower than normal temperatures on Wednesday and Thursday as rain moves into the area from the west.

Regarding rain chances… expect spotty showers on Wednesday morning with heavier rain in the afternoon and evening. The entire area should see rain but it appears the highest totals will be along and south of a line from Sallisaw to Clarksville. Highest amounts (1-3″) in the Ouachitas with lowest amounts (.50″-1.50″) in Northwest Arkansas.

Rain should be moving out Thursday afternoon, with a sunny and warmer weekend ahead. Highs will be in the 80s and below normal for the start of August.
