Severe Weather Likely Today


A slow moving front moving into the State accompanied by a potent upper level disturbance will bring another round of strong to severe thunderstorms to parts of the State Tuesday.
Below are the current watches and warnings.

The front will move into Arkansas Tuesday as a wave of low pressure moves up along the front. This will trigger additional storms by the early afternoon hours. The storms will likely initially develop over South Central Arkansas during the early afternoon hours along a boundary between rain cooled air from this morning and hotter air over Southern Arkansas. These storms will generally move North during the mid-afternoon toward Central Arkansas

The storms will initially pose a hail and tornado risk, transitioning into a more of a wind risk by later in the evening. As an upper air disturbance approaches from the West, a large complex of rain and storms will push across Central Arkansas. This will bring the risk for some additional strong storms as well as heavy rainfall. Flash flooding will be a concern in the heaviest areas of rain, where 3 to 5 inches is possible in isolated spots. 

Storms may move over the same area through the late evening hours, with the threat for locally very heavy rain and flash flooding. A Flash Flood Watch is in effect for all of Central Arkansas through this evening

The Storm Prediction Center has issued a MODERATE Risk area for parts of Central Arkansas Tuesday.

Storms will generally move out of the area before Midnight.
