We’re headed towards the 4th of July weekend, but there are still a couple of days left in the work week. How will it go in Hot Springs? Will we need a vacation?
At 1053AM, CT, Hot Springs was reporting clear skies and a temperature of 84. Hot Springs’ elevated location is keeping the area a few degrees cooler than Little Rock or Arkadelphia. The current pattern is fairly weak, but is likely to be enough to touch off some thunderstorms in northern Arkansas this afternoon, with the tail of a cold front terminating around Jonesboro and a lee trough/dry line setting up in west Texas.
The southerly flow induced by the west Texas trough will ensure things will remain unstable along the central Gulf Coast through tomorrow. The remnant boundary in Arkansas interacting with the southerly flow will mean a continued chance for some thunder in Hot Springs tomorrow, but surface high pressure building from the north will ensure that Thursday will be dry.

Not a terrible stretch of days, especially when you consider it looks like there will actually be a storm free day in the southern US in the summer Even better, it’s only going to be 85! Satellite shows little of the organization that I suggested.
