Showers and thunderstorms continue across the region this evening, but the severe weather threat will continue to wane into the overnight hours.
A record-setting storm system is moving through the Great Plains, bringing record low pressures and wind gusts to many commmunities. On the southeast end, strong to severe storms produced damaging wind gusts in parts of the ArkLaMiss through the early evening. Some remaining, elevated storms will continue into early Thursday.
The cold front associated with this system will slow tonight, prompting the possibility of additional showers and isolated thunderstorms through sunrise. Most of the rain should exit the ArkLaMiss by lunchtime.
Cool, dry air will return to the region for the weekend. Afternoon highs are expected in the low 60s, with morning lows in the upper 30s. A prolonged dry period through mid-week will also help our swollen local waterways.
