Strong storms move through Arkansas Thursday


LITTLE ROCK, Ark. — Winter is making her return on Thursday and she’s doing so with a bang!

A strong cold front is sweeping through Arkansas bringing rain and storms. A couple of storms could be strong to severe, especially over Western Arkansas as the storms move into the state.

Early Thursday, a tornado warning was issued for an area that included Mountain Home and Flippin.  The warning was cancelled just before 5 a.m.

Storms will weaken as they move into Central Arkansas later in the morning, but some gusty winds and brief heavy downpours are possible, according to Fox16 Chief Meteorologist Jeff Baskin.

Rain will push east and out of the state by late afternoon. Temperatures will tumble behind the front duing the day Thursday from near 70 early in the morning into the 40s by the afternoon.

Conditions will turn much colder Thursday night with low temperatures Friday morning in the 20s, and gusty winds making it feel like 10s.
