Stormy Sunday. Viewer Pictures

It's not too often we get severe weather in September and it's not related to a tropical system.  Usually our secondary severe weather season doesn't start until late fall or early winter.  Let's hope we're not starting a trend!

The National Weather Service will survey damage in Tichnor in southeast Arkansas Monday.  A tornado warning was in effect and there was a report of a tree down along highway 44.  Also, at one point, law enforcement reported a funnel cloud.  If the weather service determines a tornado did touch down, it would be the 73rd so far this year in Arkansas. The average is 33.

The weather looks quiet over the next few days.  Monday should be fantastic with MUCH drier air and plenty of sunshine.  Temperatures will be mild and in the mid and upper 70s for highs.  After a brief warming trend Tuesday and Wednesday, another front will take temperatures down again at the end of the week.  That front will not have much moisture to work with so rain chances will be very low to non existent.

Thanks for all the pictures received on facebook, twitter, and email.
