A powerful system will head into the region today bringing the possibility for strong to severe storms. These storms will have the potential for damaging winds, hail, and tornadoes. A Tornado Watch has been issued until 9 pm this evening.

Storms will likely develop in SW Arkansas and continue to track NE throughout the afternoon and evening, possibly between 3-5 pm and continue into late tonight. Heavy rain will also be a concern with a Flash Flood Watch through tonight. 1"- 3" of rain will be possible with locally heavy amounts.
