Weather Summary

STORMS SHOULD INTENSIFY FROM CENTRAL INTO EASTERN ARKANSAS DURING THE HEAT OF THE AFTERNOON. SOME STORMS MAY BE SEVERE, WITH LARGE HAIL AND DAMAGING WINDS THE MAIN CONCERNS.

THIS WILL NOT BE A BIG RAINMAKER. QUARTER TO THREE QUARTER INCH AMOUNTS ARE IN THE FORECAST ACROSS NORTHERN AND EASTERN ARKANSAS WITH LOCALLY OVER AN INCH. FARTHER SOUTH AND WEST, AMOUNTS WILL BE LESS, WITH NO RAIN AT ALL IN PLACES.

AS THE WEEKEND CLOSES, A POWERFUL STORM SYSTEM WILL MOVE INTO THE MIDDLE PART OF THE COUNTRY FROM THE ROCKIES. THIS WILL LIKELY RESULT IN ANOTHER ROUND OF STORMS SUNDAY AFTERNOON AND SUNDAY NIGHT. THE SYSTEM WILL BE A SLOW MOVER...WITH MORE STORMS EXPECTED ON MONDAY.

THE EVENT SUNDAY AND MONDAY COULD BE SIGNIFICANT...WITH AN OUTBREAK OF SEVERE STORMS POSSIBLE. THERE WILL ALSO BE AREAS OF HEAVY RAIN. EARLY PROJECTIONS ARE CALLING FOR WIDESPREAD ONE TO THREE INCH AMOUNTS, WITH LOCALLY OVER FOUR INCHES.
