This is going to pull in warm, humid Gulf air and prime our atmosphere for the potential for severe weather. We should see clearing skies by Wednesday afternoon.
The biggest risk with these storms are strong winds above 50 miles per hour and hail the size of quarters or larger. Some of the storms will be heavy, and isolated wind damage isn’t out of the realm of possibilities.
A powerful storm system will bring more changes to the bi-state tonight into Tuesday, with strong to severe storms possible tonight and Tuesday afternoon.
We’ll have to watch storms on Tuesday for a hail, wind and tornado threat. A cold front will accompany the boundary. A cold breeze from the northeast will drop us to 31° to 33°, so there could be some icy spots for the morning drive.
South Mississippi’s Tuesday night severe weather threat level is low, according to a Monday forecast. The cooler, drier air that sweeps in Wednesday will make it tough for most of the Valley to reach past the 50s for highs!
Friday highs could push near 80 but another cold front looks to be heading our way during the evening producing scattered showers and a few thunderstorms.
Temperatures are much warmer as you head out. Highs will climb into the mid-upper 20s.
Overnight lows are expected to dip into the mid 20s to lower 30s across northern and western parts of Arkansas.
