Central Arkansas Weather
A threat of severe thunderstorms will exist over Arkansas today as a cold front moves through the state. Activity moving into Western Arkansas this morning should continue to expand and intensify this afternoon/evening as the storms enter a more unstable atmosphere. The primary threat will be damaging wind/hail but an isolated tornado cannot be ruled out.
A more substantial risk of severe weather will exist on Sunday/Monday April 27/28 in which all modes of severe weather will be possible. Persons in Arkansas and the mid-south should monitor weather conditions both Sun/Mon.
High temperatures this afternoon in Arkansas will generally be in the 70's with a few 80's. Rainfall amounts will range from .25 to locally 1".
A Slight Risk of Severe Thunderstorms for a large part of Arkansas. The primary threat is damaging wind/large hail with a few storms during the afternoon/evening. An isolated tornado will also be possible.
Sunday April 27th and Monday April 28th needs to be watched for the possibility of some severe weather as a system moves closer to AR. SPC has highlighted the western half of the state for this possibility on Sunday and most of the state on Monday.
