Dry Weather Continues Across Arkansas

JANUARY 2,2006- Posted at 12:45 p.m.

UNDATED -  More dry, windy weather is expected across Arkansas today -- not good news for the already drought stricken state.

Two-thirds of the state is at risk of having wildfires, and wildfire conditions in 14 counties are considered extremely high.Counties in northeast and eastern Arkansas and a few counties in south-central Arkansas have been the least affected and they have NOT had to put burn bans into place.

The National Weather Service says the next cold front will head across Arkansas on Wednesday, but still NO rain is expected through at least the weekend.Cooler temperatures should return later this week.

The drought has hurt farmers and ranchers and reduced drinking sources in some communities to unusually low levels.
