FRIDAY: A significant risk for severe weather is at play across much of Arkansas Friday. This time, a Level 4 risk has been highlighted across most of eastern and parts of central Arkansas. A Level 3 risk has been highlighted across most of the state as well.

We start the morning out with cloudy skies and showers. Temperatures will be in the upper 60s to low 70s at first. Then storms start building over western Arkansas around midday.

As storms build into the midday hours and early afternoon hours, they become more likely to produce tornadoes. These will continue working their way through central and eastern Arkansas during the afternoon. Otherwise, we expect partly cloudy skies with windy conditions. Highs reach the lower 80s.
