WOW! What a great shot from Lori D. in Allison, Arkansas. Ever heard of Allison? It's between Fifty-Six and Herpel. Still don't know? Ok... near Mountain Home.
Our weather is more typical of summertime, but the overall pattern across the United States still isn't. The jet stream is still highly amplified with a monster ridge out west and troughing east. By late in the week, it still appears a front may sneak in here from the north or the northeast. If this should occur, rain chances will be elevated Friday into Saturday and some drier air may vacation in Arkansas for a day or two.
