Evening forecast for Thursday, May 3

Weather

Showers and storms have threatened the ArkLaMiss through most of the afternoon, but have generally stayed west of us. That scenario changes tomorrow as a new cold front moves through the region.

The powerful storm system that brought severe weather over the last several days to the central United States is much weaker this evening. However, a stout ridge of high pressure over the Gulf of Mexico has nearly halted any southeastward progress of those storms.

As the ridge slides south tomorrow, showers and storms will move into the ArkLaMiss. Most of the activity will be after dark. Additional scattered storms will continue through early Saturday morning, with leftover showers continuing into Saturday evening.

Skies will clear for Sunday, setting the stage for a modest warming trend to near seasonal norms in terms of temperatures for the first of next week.
