A severe thunderstorm watch is in effect through 8 pm mainly for the Southern half of Arkansas. Showers and storms that moved through Central Arkansas with strong winds, heavy rains and frequent lightning are moving South through South Central Arkansas. The storms are still capable of producing some locally strong damaging wind gusts through 8pm. Light rain will continue across Central Arkansas through the evening, but no additional storms are expected to develop in the rain cooled air. A few showers will linger through around Midnight. The storms are associated with a cold front moving into the State which will bring slightly cooler and less humid weather for Thursday.
