From 19° early in the week to near 80° Saturday, that's how we roll in Arkansas this time of year.
I expect a round of showers and storms to move into western Arkansas just before sunrise Saturday. Some of these storms will be strong and I can't rule out a severe thunderstorm or two with this. As it moves east, the chance for severe thunderstorms within this line may increase if the warm air builds far enough to the north. The main threats will be wind and hail. As always, the threat for a tornado or two can't be ruled out, but it's on the low side for much of the Channel 7 viewing area.
The next round of rain and storms for Arkansas is highly questionable. If they do develop Saturday afternoon, they should be isolated and mainly across eastern Arkansas.
Meanwhile, temperatures have the potential to skyrocket Saturday afternoon to near 80 degrees with strong southwesterly to westerly winds. Those winds could exceed 30mph.
Remember, computer models are never perfect, but this gives a good general idea how this may unfold.
