Severe storms possible in Arkansas

LITTLE ROCK (KATV) — Warmer and more unstable air is moving into Arkansas Tuesday.


Late Tuesday afternoon a strong cold front will approach from the west. Some strong to severe storms could occur late in the afternoon and into the evening hours ahead of the front.

The greatest threat from these storms is expected to be gusty winds and possibly large hail. There is also a small threat of isolated tornadoes.

The more likely area for severe weather appears to be just north of Little Rock. That's where an Enhanced Risk of severe weather has been posted by the Storm Prediction Center. The rest of the state is under a slight risk.

Overnight Tuesday, a line of storms possibly containing gusty winds is expected to move across the state. This system should be decreasing by Wednesday morning.
