We're keeping a close eye on three areas of storms. Right now, the strongest storms in the ArkLaTex are north of I-30. A PDS TORNADO WATCH continues for the entire area.

The watch was initially in effect until 10 p.m. this evening, the threat of severe weather could linger overnight. All modes of severe weather are possible. 

Friday, April 13 is Severe Weather Alert Day. A potent storm system will bring in two rounds of storms through Friday night. A blast of chilly air is also expected for the weekend. There is a Moderate Risk of severe storms for a small part of northwest Louisiana, a very small part of northeast Texas and most of southwest Arkansas. 

Widespread severe storms are likely, with isolated tornadoes; some being strong. Expect widespread wind damage, torrential rain and destructive hail. Long-lived widespread intense storms are also likely.

Please remember to charge your mobile devices and follow us on air and online for continuous coverage you can count on. 

The severe threat will run from early afternoon into the overnight hours. Damaging wind gusts, damaging hail, heavy rain, and a few tornadoes are the main threats. And a couple of the tornadoes may be strong.

The above graphics comprise a timeline. The initial activity will be the stronger activity and will tend to move out around midnight.

Another round of storms along a cold front will affect the eastern and southeastern parts of our area after midnight finally moving out of the area before day break. We will see a gradual decrease in clouds during Saturday.
