Risk of severe storms late Saturday into Sunday morning

(KSLA) - There is a slight risk of severe storms for SW Arkansas and most of NW Louisiana from late Saturday into Sunday morning. It is bordered by a Marginal Risk, the lowest risk, for the rest of the Ark-La-Tex.  It appears from the time line storms could start in the northern Ark-La-Tex after 7 p.m.and exit our entire area by early Sunday morning.

The main threats with the evening and overnight storms are high thunderstorm wind gusts and damaging large hail. Downpours maybe found in any strong storms but flooding issues should not develop. The tornado threat appears low.

Here's the latest time line of storms from Futuretrack:

8:00 AM: Showers with isolated thunder will develop before dawn Saturday. Some of those storms may contain small hail, but we're unlikely to see severe weather early in the day.

8:00 PM: Strong to severe storms are developing in and near southwest Arkansas.

10:00 PM: Strong to severe storms are ongoing in southwest Arkansas with some storms building back into northeast Texas.

12:00 AM: The strongest storms are found around the I-20 corridor across northern Louisiana and east Texas.

3:00 AM: A few strong storms show up south of I-20, but the threat for severe weather is diminishing by this time of night.

The time line and placement of strongest storms could always change slightly. We will track it very carefully.
