We’ve received numerous reports of downed trees and tree limbs associated with the cluster of severe storms that impacted the area. The severe storms will continue to progress southward through Coosa and Tallapoosa counties, eventually departing the coverage area.
A severe thunderstorm watch remains in place for most of our counties through 9PM. A very warm/moist and unstable air mass, coupled with an active northwest flow aloft, will guide additional thunderstorms in our direction. The timing with these thunderstorm clusters can’t be quite tricky but we’re already seeing additional development over northern Arkansas. These storms will progress east-southeast so we will be monitoring this activity closely. We may be dealing with these storms late tonight or early tomorrow.
It looks like this pattern won’t break until a cold front makes a push through the area early Tuesday. You can expect another hot and humid day tomorrow, with another round of thunderstorms possible. Some storms could be severe again, with the possibility of large hail and damaging straight-line winds. The threat for a passing storm or shower will end from north to south on Tuesday as the cold front pushes through the area. By Wednesday we will start to see big improvement, with mostly sunny weather returning. It’s still going to feel very hot, with highs near 90-degrees by next weekend.
Be sure to join us tonight at 9PM for another LIVE update regarding the severe thunderstorms.
