LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) â€” Weather forecasters say Arkansas is showing signs of a developing drought and the state Forestry Commission is warning of a heightened fire danger.
After ample rainfall in the cooler months, precipitation levels have fallen below normal in recent weeks. The National Weather Service on Tuesday issued an advisory that moisture levels in vegetation have dropped to the point that the danger of wildfires is heightened.
The Forestry Commission lists all of the state except northeast Arkansas at a moderate danger of wildfires.
