Finally the computer models are showing a light at the end of the hot tunnel. The latest data is showing a strong cold front slicing in on Saturday providing a round of thunderstorms before lower humidity and cooler weather arrives in time for Labor Day. Highs could be in the 80s area wide for a couple of days. Will it be the end of the summer weather? Probably not, but the end is getting much closer. In the mean time, 2011 will go down as the hottest summer ever recorded in Fort Smith. Northwest Arkansas will go down as one of the hottest, but some of the dust bowl years in the 1930s were a little hotter.
