Weekend Weather: Saturday, May 18th


Happy Saturday! It’s been a warm and humid one with some scattered showers and thunderstorms through the course of the day, with a few Severe Thunderstorm warning along our northern counties in southern Arkansas. 

The chance for severe weather will continue through the evening, overnight and into tomorrow morning as our line of storms moves through. Storms should arrive in our western parishes/counties a couple hours after sunset, reaching the Missisippi Rier by sunrise. There could be some limiting factors regarding severe potential, but damaging winds, some hail and isolated tornadoes are still possible. Some of the short range models fizzle out storms through the night, so that is something to keep in mind as well. While some severe storms will be possible tonight, an event like the last few is not expected.

Showers and thunderstorms will linger into the mroning, with some clearning during the day. Showers and thunderstorms will be possible after midnight Sunday/Monday.

The scattered shower and thunderstorm chances will stay into Monday, but most should stay dry. Severe weather also looks unlikely at this time. 

For the remainder of the week: hot, humid and mostly rain free will be the main story as we start to get into more of a normal pattern. Temperatures will be in the lower 90’s with a chance for an isolated shower or thunderstorm during the afternoon, more typical of this time of year.
