LONG RANGE (Day 3-7): ...Little change from yesterday's forecast package..The long range period will start off high pressure in control for the weekend. The cold airmass that's currently in place will begin to significantly modify as we move into the weekend into early next week. Temperatures during this period will have near/slightly above normal temperatures. A new storm system looks to impact the area as we move toward the middle part of your next workweek with even the potential of some isolated thunderstorms but given poor instability values, have kept scattered showers for now. Will keep a eye on the later part of next week, as a cold shot looks to move down into Arkansas. Along this shot, a impulse still looks to develop along/in the gulf of Mexico and could lead to winter weather chances but that is about a week away so stay tuned for future updates..Otherwise no winter/severe weather is currently expected in the long range period.
