Cold Front to Push Arkansas Temps Near Freezing in Some Areas

LITTLE ROCK, AR - The National Weather Service says a cold front heading for Arkansas is expected to push temperatures close to freezing in parts of the state.

Temperatures in most of the state are expected to be in the upper 50s for a high tomorrow, while nighttime temperatures could reach into the mid 30s.

National Weather Service meteorologist Chuck Rickard says some areas may get their first frost of the season.

There is also a 30-to-40 percent chance of rain tomorrow.

Richard says most of the parts of the state will drop into the 30s for the first time tomorrow night.

Richard says the cooler temperatures are a taste of what Arkansas will begin to see near the end of October or beginning of November, when temperatures consistently hit the 50-degree mark during the day.
