SEVERE WEATHER: A few storms are possible in northeast Arkansas Wednesday evening
LITTLE ROCK, Ark – Our period of extreme heat is expected to continue Wednesday afternoon with highs in the 100’s and temperatures near 110’s! Along with the heat, there is a weak cold front that will slide from north to south on Wednesday evening bringing some showers and thunderstorms.
The Storm Prediction Center has part of central Arkansas under a marginal risk of severe weather for tonight’s storms. Marginal is the lowest possible risk and the only concern is damaging winds up to 60 mph in the strongest thunderstorms.
Thunderstorms will begin to appear around 7 p.m. in northeastern Arkansas and a few light showers are possible in the southern half of the state.
Even if these storms will be very scattered, they can still cause damage. The last two sets of storms cause more than 10,000 power outages. Most of the outages were caused by gusts of wind snapping tree branches over power lines.
