Tornado Watch cancelled for north central Arkansas, severe potential diminishing

Local News

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. – The tornado watch for north central Arkansas has been cancelled. Northeast Arkansas counties are still under the watch until 1 a.m.

A cold front is slowly moving into central Arkansas. The potential for an isolated storm still exists overnight, though it does not appear likely that if one forms it will turn severe.

Super Tuesday will be mostly dry, but rain returns to central and south Arkansas Wednesday into Thursday as another low pressure system develops closer to the Gulf Coast.

Predicted rainfall totals have come down quite a bit over the past couple days. The northern half of the state is now more likely to see less than an inch of rain through the end of the week. Parts of central and south Arkansas may receive closer to an inch, inch and a half of rain as that part of the state will have the best chances for rain Wednesday and Thursday, too.
