LITTLE ROCK, Ark. – SUNDAY NIGHT UPDATE: After a week straight of record-breaking heat and almost no rain the threat of severe weather is back in the forecast. The concern is caused by a storm complex that will move through Sunday afternoon.

WHAT: The storm prediction center has much of Central Arkansas under a severe thunderstorm watch until 9 PM. The area in pink has the best chance of seeing damaging winds up to 80 mph and up to tennis ball-sized hail.

TIMING: Sunday morning will remain dry, sunny, and warm. If you have outdoor plans the morning will be the best time to do them. Storms will begin to move into Northwest Arkansas during the afternoon hours and be in Central Arkansas near dinner time. Most of the storms will be out of the state after dark.

THREATS: With Sunday’s setup the biggest threat is large hail. Hailstones could get as big as tennis balls. Within the line of storms, we could also see wind gusts 60-80 mph. Some flash flooding is also likely. The risk for tornadoes is still very low.
