The National Weather Service said Tuesday that a cold front is heading into Arkansas.

Showers and thunderstorms could develop from this front, but the overall threat of strong storms will be low and isolated if they form, the weather service said.

"Through the early afternoon hours, there will continue to be frequent lightning, and perhaps some small hail and wind gusts to around 30 mph," said John Robinson, warning coordination meteorologist for the National Weather Service in Little Rock.

All significant rain has ended in Northwest Arkansas, Robinson said after 9 a.m.

Most rainfall totals elsewhere will be between 1/4 inch and 3/4 inch, Robinson said, with a few spots receiving up to an inch and a half.

The front is expected to move out of Arkansas by Wednesday morning, and dry weather is expected until Thursday.

Rain is likely Friday and into the weekend as another cold front slowly approaches Arkansas. This cold front is expected to move out of the state Monday.

The weather service said the front may stall over the state and areas of heavy rain could develop, but the chance of severe storms is low.
