The National Weather Service office in Tulsa, OK has given a preliminary rating of the Cincinnati, AR tornado an EF3 with winds around 140 mph.
While it wasn't a widespread outbreak for the state, the isolated tornado took the lives of 3 fellow Arkansans on this New Year's Eve. Our prayers go to those in northwest Arkansas.

Storms developed again across southern and eastern Arkansas late in the afternoon as instability increased in that area. One storm passed along and just east of Star City producing large hail that covered the ground. Here are a few pictures below.
I will update the top 10 weather events of 2010 and it will include the northwest Arkansas twister. I hope to have that completed Saturday. From all of us at Channel 7, have a happy and safe New Years Day.
