One More Day of Stifling Heat Before Cooler Weather Arrives

JULY 21, 2006 - Posted at 8:18 a.m. CDT

 

LITTLE ROCK, AR - Weather forecasters say Arkansans must endure one more day of stifling heat today before relief arrives in the form of a cold front that should cool things off tomorrow.

Communities from north to south in Arkansas recorded temperatures of 100 degrees or higher for the fourth straight day yesterday.  Russellville and Mount Ida recorded highs of 105, while North Little Rock, Little Rock, Hot Springs, Fort Smith, De Queen and Harrison all reached 104.

National Weather Service forecasters say highs are likely to be in the neighborhood of 100 again today.  But tomorrow, high temperatures are expected to be in the upper 80s or lower 90s.
