WEATHER RUNDOWN: Severe threat ramping up again

By  | 

***UPDATED TUESDAY MORNING***


A gloomy start to the day with widespread low clouds and even some patchy drizzle. By this afternoon, clouds will start to thin allowing for some limited sun and temperatures should respond by climbing into the mid 60s.

Late tonight, storms will start to fire to our west in Kansas and these will begin to make their way northeast. By early Wednesday morning, expect scattered showers and storms to move into the region just in time for that morning commute.

After the early morning storms, we should see a break midday before stronger thunderstorms start to develop during the afternoon in our western counties. These will then push east through Wednesday evening and this is when we'll see our greatest risk of severe weather. Right now, the highest potential looks like it will be in Northern Arkansas where there will be a threat of damaging winds, large hail and isolated tornadoes with some of the storms.

More showers and storms will move through on Thursday before the entire system finally exits to the east on Friday.


When all is said and done, many locations could pick up 2-4" of rain with this storm and this could lead to localized flooding issues.
