Meteorologist Mark’s Wx Concerns

More storms will threaten this evening. Any of those storms could be severe. Timeframe, as of right now, looks to be after 5:00 pm and ending by 9:00 pm. I’ll have a special update at 3:00 pm to update you on the latest.

Meteorologist Mark’s Wx Discussion

We will have several hours for the atmosphere to work on destabilizing, before a cold front comes in this evening. That front is currently moving into western Arkansas and is moving east. That front will be capable of producing more severe storms. I’ll keep an eye on it.

The first round of storms came last night and got many of us out of bed. Thankfully, they did a decent job behaving themselves. Then, round two came this morning and we await the third and final round this evening.
