Severe Weather Monday

We have been talking about this for quite awhile now, there will be two more rounds of significant severe weather across the state.  The first arrives Monday into Monday night, then another late Tuesday into Wednesday morning.  Hail, high winds, and tornadoes will all be possible with both rounds.

The other threat will be flash flooding.  The Memphis and Little Rock National Weather Service calls the flooding threat a "particularly dangerous situation."  I have never seen that before in all my 13 years of forecasting the weather.

Unfortunately, we will have to interrupt programming once these storms become tornado producers.  Please know that we only do this to help save lives and property.

Check out all maps below.

24 hour rainfall ending 11 PM Sunday according to our 5 Live Dopplers

HPC shows additional rainfall amounts of 4-8 inches across much of central and northern Arkansas.  This is possible 5 day rainfall amounts.

As of late Sunday, the SPC has most of the state under a moderate risk for severe weather.
SPC shows a high chance for severe weather within 25 miles of any given point.
