Arkansas Tax Free Weekend Announced, learn more here.
I hope everybody has been having a great week so far!
Expect a pretty warm day today with a high temperature around 90° with a slight chance for a pop-up shower (20%), nighttime low in the low 70’s, and winds ESE at 5-10mph.
After a few storms rolled through last night our radar is clear and should stay that way until this afternoon when storms have a chance to form with the afternoon heating.
In the Tropical news Tropical Storm Julia formed while sitting right on top of NE Florida yesterday and was forecast to have 0% chance of tropical development within a few hours it jumped to 60% or greater chance and is now a tropical storm with a central pressure of 1009mb and max sustained winds of 40mph. Julia will continue to move along the east coast until it is pushed back into the Atlantic by an approaching cold front.
At the same time tropical depression 12 is rapidly gaining strength as it moves farther away from the west coast of Africa and should become a tropical storm today it currently has a central pressure of 1009mb and max winds of 35mph.

Have a great Thursday everyone and stay Weather Aware.
