Severe weather: Damaging storms possible for southwest Arkansas Monday night

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. – The snow is long gone and now it’s starting to look a lot more like spring in Arkansas. And it wouldn’t be spring in its natural state without the risk of severe weather.

The high pressure that brought us good weather on Sunday will move eastward throughout the day on Monday. On Monday, the sky will be mostly cloudy with a 30% chance of a rain shower. The risk of severe weather is not until Monday evening.


The line of potentially severe thunderstorms will move into far southwestern Arkansas after sunset Monday evening. Storms will move west to east across southern Arkansas overnight and into the early hours of Tuesday morning.

On Tuesday the system will stall over us and continue to bring naturally occurring showers and thunderstorms. There is no risk of severe weather on Tuesday.

Watch the video below for the hour-by-hour forecast track.


The location that will have the best configuration to sustain strong to severe thunderstorms is far from southwestern Arkansas. There is a slight risk of severe storms for Ark-La-Tex. The marginal risk of storms is lower for locations further north and east. Little Rock is not included in marginal risk but could see mild thunderstorms.


The overall risk of severe weather is low. Low-risk locations have the best chance of seeing a storm that could produce damaging winds or hail. There is also a low risk of an isolated tornado or flash flooding. Again, the overall risk is low.
