The Storm Prediction Center has issued a Severe Thunder Watch until 10 pm for most of Arkansas.

The storms will be impacting Arkansas during the late afternoon and evening. They will move from west to east across the state between 4 pm and 10 pm.

The main threat within the strongest storms is very large hail. Some storms could produce baseball size hail. Damaging wind gusts 60-80 mph will also be possible. The threat of tornadoes is low because this system doesn’t have strong low-level winds. The threat is low but not zero.

These storms will be quick hitters so they won’t last long. That doesn’t mean they won’t pack a punch. Be weather aware between 4 pm and 10 pm Saturday!
