LITTLE ROCK, Ark. – Thursday 8 AM Update– The Storm Prediction Center (SPC) has placed much of Arkansas, especially north and central, in a MARGINAL RISK (5%) for severe weather Thursday.
A cluster of weakening storms has moved into Arkansas from Missouri early this morning. This system has continued to weaken but as it does so, it is leaving an outflow boundary in its wake.
This outflow boundary in combination with heat and humidity this afternoon will be all that we need for more thunderstorms to develop. They will be scattered in nature. While many of these storms will stay below severe limits, a few cannot be ruled out from going severe.
Any storms that become strong and/or severe will threaten strong wind gusts (~60 mph) and hail.
The Arkansas Storm Team will be watching this system closely and providing updates on any severe storms in the area via on-air and on social media. Stay weather aware!
