Thursday Severe Specifics

A typical spring storm will affect the state Thursday, especially late in the day with a round of strong to severe thunderstorms.   I expect storms to develop this Wednesday afternoon over Oklahoma and Kansas.  Some of this will drift into Arkansas along with cloud cover tonight.  It will likely NOT be severe at that time.  This will create a canopy of cloud cover in the morning for some sections of the state.  If the clouds break, we'll really have a chance to destabilize during the afternoon as the front makes slow progress into the state.  We'll likely see a line of storms develop and push through the state late Thursday afternoon and evening.  The main threats will be wind and hail, but we can't rule out an isolated tornado.

This video goes over specifics PLUS a new addition to the Arkansas Weather Blog.
