Tht most fortunate locality was around Newport where around an inch of rain fell. Other amounts near an inch fell in southeast Arkansas. For the most part 6th«r irt»s in the Arkansas River Valley reported less than Vt inch, although Dardenelle came up with .44; Blythevilie had in exces of '/4 inch for one of the larger amounts noted in th* delta. High pressure over the area is weakening somewhat. The further movement of the depression of the west Florida coast will be watched as a posible contributing factor to any new shower activity in Arkansas. Meanwhile scattered afternoon and evening thundershowers are expected to continue with spotted coverage and variable rainfall amounts. Yesterday's high ranged in the 90s but the lOQ-degree mark was reached at Little Rock, Batesville, Calico Rock and Hot Springs. Overnight lows were in the mid 60s to the low 70s. Thun- dershpwer activity is expected to continue with a 30 percent probability of afternoon and evening thundershowers in east and south Arkansas and 20 percent in the northwest. Rainfall amounts will generally be too light to provide relief from the drouth conditions. Morktts Opeo fllsb L6w Last Chicago Whtat July Sept. Dec. July Aug.
