LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) -- Arkansas is expecting severe weather tonight, so here is a straightforward forecast from our Chief Meteorologist Ed Buckner.
Remember to stay safe and informed as the weather continues to change.
Waves of heavy rain and thunderstorms will be likely.
Some storms will be severe with 60 mile per hour winds and one inch hail possible.
Tornado threat is very limited, but can’t be ruled out entirely anytime with severe thunderstorms.
Heaviest rain/storms will come in two different waves across CENTRAL ARKANSAS, between 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. and again from 10 p.m. to 2 a.m.
Flash Flooding across the northern part of state is concern there. Wind damage/power intensifies my concern west and central and east into early Saturday morning.
Severe threat looks to be over by midnight with all threats gone by around 4 a.m.
Showers might continue into the early morning hours, but only a 30% chance.
Most rain should be gone by noon, but clouds and cool temperatures will last all day.
Cloudy with a high of only 66.
Sunday starts very cool with lows in the mid 40s with some clearing expected.
Afternoon should be sunny with a high near 70. Beautiful day!
