Storms with tornadoes possible in Arkansas, Texas, Louisiana

Storms with tornadoes possible in Arkansas, Texas, Louisiana

STORMY SUNDAY: From the west, an upper trough, surface low pressure, and the associated cold front moves east toward the Southeast, and this will allow the threat for severe storms to move into Alabama Sunday. As mentioned earlier, there will be a lot of energy in the atmosphere before the cold front arrives, so any storms that fire up during the afternoon could very well turn severe. Rain is in the forecast for the weekend.

The storms coupled with temperatures reaching almost 80 degrees will create a very humid, sticky uncomfortable environment. Large hail, damaging winds, and tornadoes may occur with any storms that become severe. If that activity develops, it will move out of the area during the evening and the area should be mainly dry for the rest of the night.

Keep in mind the timing of these storms could change by a few hours. A SLIGHT RISK has been posted for most of the central sections of our region. A line of storms will enter the NW edge of the area shortly after sunset. The main issue with this system will be damaging straight line wind.

Drugged driving now bigger highway threat than drunk driving
Traffic fatalities are also on the rise, which has been attributed to an improved economy and more distracted and drugged driving. Adkins said. "In 2005, only 28 percent of drivers tested positive for drugs after dying in a crash".

Oklahoma residents in the central and eastern parts of the state should also be on the lookout for flash floods, according to the National Weather Service. The majority of our counties should be clear of severe weather by the time we hit Sunday early morning. Cool and soggy for your Sunday with highs struggling to get out of the 60s. Highs stay in the low 80s.

After a brief respite from storms, rain will return to the forecast by mid-week, setting the stage for several rainy days.

The first front is expected to move across Arkansas this afternoon and this evening, delivering thunderstorms and wind gusts of up to 6o miles per hour, said meteorologist Brian Smith of the National Weather Service in North Little Rock.
