This evening a strong cold front will approach our northern border. Meanwhile, out ahead of the front, we'll see scattered showers and thunderstorms develop in West Central Arkansas. Further into the overnight hours these storms will lose their punch but they will still aim for Central Arkansas.
The cold front will linger over Southern Arkansas tomorrow and give us around round of thunderstorms near Little Rock and south of I-40. The rain chances will linger into the first half of the weekend before the frontal boundary washes out over the state.
Overall, this active pattern will lead to rainfall totals ranging from a quarter inch to possibly over an inch in some areas. Be sure to keep it tuned to FOX 16 News for the latest breaking news from the weather department.
