LITTLE ROCK, Ark. – Before we can dry up from our most recent storms, we are already looking for the next round. With this round of rain and storms, the biggest concern is flooding in parts of the state. There is a low risk for severe weather in some of the stronger storms.
A slow-moving storm will begin to enter Arkansas Tuesday afternoon. It will start off as very heavy rain and thunderstorms. The storm system will stall to our north and continue to bring showers and storms through Wednesday morning.
With more than 24 hours of rain, parts of the state could see 3-5″. Right now it is looking like Southwest Arkansas will see the most with lesser amounts as you move to the north.
Although the risk for severe weather is rather low. Arkansans will still need to be weather-aware Tuesday afternoon. That initial line of storms could be strong enough to produce damaging winds, hail, and even a tornado.
The storm prediction center has most of Arkansas under a marginal risk for severe storms. This means the risk is low but not zero.
After the rain moves out we will see a large area of high pressure that will keep us sunny and warm through the weekend!
