(8/9/2018) Good Thursday morning! It’s a warm and mild start outside for many of us in the ArkLaMiss, and a rainy start for the folks in southern Arkansas. A Flash Flood Warning has been issued for parts of NE Calhoun County and NW Drew County until 7:15am, and more rainfall is on the way. Showers and storms will continue to fire up along a stationary frontal boundary that pushes south through the late morning and early afternoon. Rain will fill into parts of north Louisiana as the late morning and early afternoon go on. A marginal risk for severe weather has been issued from the Storm Prediction Center, a low-end severe threat but we will see the potential for some localized flash flooding, small hail, and damaging wind gusts. Temperatures will stay a bit cooler through the day thanks to the clouds and rain, anywhere from the upper 80’s to the mid 90’s with winds from the west.
Overnight lows are going to be dropping back into the mid 70’s with some lingering showers and storms possible.
Tomorrow is going to be another mostly cloudy to overcast day with showers and storms. Rain will continue along the stationary front sitting in the ArkLaMiss bringing less coverage than the showers and storms today, but many of us still likely receiving rain. That’s going to once again help keep those temps in the upper 80’s and lower 90’s.
