Early Afternoon Rain

Today began with mostly gray skies, high humidity and a gusty south wind blowing. Although the sun tried to break through a few times, mostly cloudy has prevailed.

During the early afternoon we received a short, but heavy, rain shower that only lasted about five minutes. NOAA's satellite weather map shows tiny isolated showers scattered across northern Arkansas. It looks as if the map has been sprinkled with blue salt. We'll probably receive more scattered showers before the new cold front arrives. So far, the temperature is holding steady around 70º and hasn't started falling yet.
