More Severe Weather
One more round of strong to severe storms, then we will have a long dry stretch of weather.
This system coming through Wednesday has been highlighted here on the Arkansas Weather Blog and on KATV for several days now. Today, the Storm Prediction Center has placed much of central, eastern, and southern Arkansas in a slight risk for severe weather.
For severe weather, you need all the ingredients to come together for it to happen. At this time, we are lacking instability. However, if we have just enough, there will be plenty of wind energy to produce damaging wind gusts and a tornado or two can't be ruled out. I also have some concern because this is coming in during the peak heating of the day for some. I'll have the timing below.
Due to the lack of instability, I'm not anticipating an outbreak of severe weather. If this fuel is greater than predicted by the models, then more can be expected. I'll continue to monitor.
The following images are from the RPM. Not perfect, but it has a good sense of timing.
