LITTLE ROCK, AR - A cold front will sag into the state today then become nearly stationary over the state, bringing the possibility of severe weather.
Showers and thunderstorms will be possible along the front with areas of heavy rain possible. The threat for any strong to severe storms will be low; if any severe storm does develop it would have the potential for large hail and damaging winds.
The greatest area would be over south Arkansas south of the cold front.
The chance of showers and isolated thunderstorms will continue tonight. Heavy rain will be possible today and tonight over parts of Arkansas with amounts reaching two to three inches and a few isolated spots of higher amounts.
The storm system will gradually move east on Wednesday and take the showers and thunderstorms out of the state through the day. Areas of heavy rain will still be possible with the morning storms until they push out of the state.
Then high pressure will filter in behind the system and dry and cooler weather through the end of the week. The chance of rain will be over the weekend but at this time the threat for any severe storms is quite low.
