Still watching for severe weather late tonight

By  | 

MONROE, La. (KNOE) - The front has more or less stalled in northern Arkansas this afternoon and the area of low pressure will be tracking southeast toward Jackson, MS tonight.

This is why the risk for severe weather changed in our area.

The central and southern portion of our viewing area is under a Marginal Risk for severe storms, meaning we could see isolated severe thunderstorm warnings.

The northeast part of our viewing area is under a Slight Risk though. This means there will be scattered severe thunderstorm warnings and possibly a couple tornado warnings however the tornado warnings seem much less likely as of Saturday afternoon.

Once everything gets moving again the showers/storms ahead of the front should be in southern Arkansas after midnight tonight and then moving southward through the morning hours.

This is going to be a pretty slow moving system, but the heaviest rain totals have shifted to the east side of where the area of low pressure is going to track.

Our estimated rain totals by Sunday morning will likely amount to less than an inch now.

The weather for Sunday will still be pretty cloudy as we'll likely have low-level clouds hanging around through the day.

We could expect to see a little clearing in the afternoon with much more expected overnight into Monday morning.

Temperatures next week will likely be chilly in the mornings with lows in the 30s and 40s, and pretty mild in the afternoon with highs in the 50s and 60s through mid week.
