Josh: Storms likely late Wednesday

Severe Thunderstorms Move Through Area

The Storm Prediction Center (SPC) has a (#1) Marginal Risk of severe weather on Wednesday from the Central Gulf Coast Northeastward into portions of the Northeast.

A severe thunderstorm warning is issued when a storm is capable of producing 1 ince sized hail and/or 58 miles per hour or stronger winds. Significant severe weather outbreak expected late tomorrow through Wednesday. The line of storms could impact the Valley from 9 3 p.m. There's a chance of one or two tornados, damage from strong winds and hail, according to the risk category.

STRONG STORMS POSSIBLE WEDNESDAY: Even though the primary forcing will remain north of the area on Wednesday, the risk for severe weather is there for mainly the northern half of the state.

"Additionally, these storms will be capable of producing large hail and potentially a few tornadoes". Again, I remind you of how they had trouble with the storms that rapidly popped up Monday morning, so my faith in them is not very high right now.

Tuesday is a much different day; we think rain will be limited in coverage and many of us will be dry.

Severe weather apps are another way people can maintain a degree of vigilance against unsafe storms during nighttime or early morning hours.

A cold front is expected to move into the state on Wednesday, and storms are expected to break out along and ahead of it.

The area under the enhanced risk is north of Little Rock and includes Russellville, Conway, Harrison, Mountain Home and Jonesboro. The high Thursday will be in the low 60s, followed by upper 50s Friday.

"It's critical for people to have multiple ways to receive notifications and updated information about severe weather warnings, such as through a weather alert radio", said IEMA Director James K. Joseph in a statement.
