Tropical Trouble For Arkansas?

It's too early to know how and if a developing area of low pressure will impact Arkansas weather.  However, there are a couple models showing that potential next week.  If you have vacation plans to the Gulf coast, you need to pay attention to the forecast

At this time, the National Hurricane Center gives it a 60% chance for development over the next 5 days.  Regardless of being named or not, the big story will be the potential for flooding rainfall especially east of the state.  There will also be the potential for tornadoes mainly east of the state and that's dependent upon the track of the low.  You do not want to be along or east of the path!  

The further west it tracks, the more tropical moisture will make its way into Arkansas.

The video goes over all the specifics with all the new model data.
