Chance of Severe Thunderstorms and Very Slight Risk for Tornados in North Arkansas This Afternoon and Tonight

Little Rock National Weather Service Warning Coordination Meteorologist John Robinson says we will probably see, from early afternoon today through late this evening, at least a few severe thunderstorms over the northern half of Arkansas. Damaging winds should have a greater chance of occurring than large hail. The tornado threat is relatively low, but not zero. Some storms are likely to continue after midnight, but chances for severe storms should diminish by then.

On Wednesday afternoon and evening, isolated severe storms could occur over the southern half of the state. Chances for severe weather, overall, look to be less than what is expected today.

On both days, there will be some locally heavy downpours with the strongest storms. Some localized flooding could occur.
