LITTLE ROCK, Ark. – Our extended quiet stretch of weather is quickly coming to an end as storms pop up across the state. Severe weather is possible for the rest of Wednesday and into Thursday morning.
WHAT: A cold front is slowly moving from north to south through Arkansas. Out ahead of the front strong to severe thunderstorms will be possible. The Storm Prediction Center has most of Arkansas under a slight risk for severe thunderstorms. This is level 2 of 5 so the chance of seeing a damaging storm is on the low side.
TIMING: Strong storms are already in the state. The storms will move from north to south throughout Wednesday evening. There will be another wave of storms that will move through Thursday morning.
THREATS: The main concerns with this round of storms will be damaging wind and large hail. Flash flooding will be possible where multiple thunderstorms move over the same location. The risk for tornadoes is very low.
