A low end severe weather threat is expected during the overnight hours across parts of the ArkLaTex. Areas along and north of I-20 have been placed under a ‘Marginal’ risk of severe weather, which is the lowest risk level.
Unlike Monday when the main severe weather threats were for damaging wind and isolated tornadoes, the storms tonight are only expected to pose a risk for up to quarter-sized hail. The storms will be ‘elevated’ in nature, which means the bottom of the storms will be very high above the ground. This makes it much more difficult for damaging wind gusts to reach the ground and for tornadoes to form.
The timing of storms looks to be after midnight. The threat for strong storms will end around sunrise Wednesday morning. Here’s an hour-by-hour look at the storms with Futuretrack:
While this doesn’t look like significant or widespread severe weather it’s still important to stay weather aware. The KSLA First Alert Weather Team makes it easy to stay informed.
