LITTLE ROCK, Ark.- SUNDAY AFTERNOON UPDATE – Be sure to keep an eye on the forecast this afternoon as showers and storms will be possible. A few of those storms could become strong to severe.

This is why a severe thunderstorm watch is in effect until 9 PM for all counties highlighted below including Little Rock.

Wind gusts up to 60 MPH and mainly hail up to 1 ” in diameter will be the main concern. That being said, there could be a storm or two that could produce hail up to 2″+ in diameter. While the risk is lower, a brief tornado or two cannot be ruled out.
