Wednesday is First Alert Weather Day. Severe storms expected.
A round of severe weather is expected on Wednesday as a strong storm system and cold front pass through the ArkLaTex. The beginning of what may be a significant severe weather and tornado outbreak across the Deep South is expected to start in the ArkLaTex Wednesday morning. Much of the area is under a ‘Slight’ risk or 2 on a scale of 1 to 5. A higher severe weather risk lies just east of the area.
Thunderstorms are expected to start early, with severe weather possible as soon as sunrise Wednesday. Here’s Futuretrack at 7am:
By midday strong to severe storms have developed into NW Louisiana.
We’ll still be tracking the threat of severe weather during the early to mid afternoon hours.
By 5pm the threat for strong to severe storms is expected to lie to our east.
All modes of severe weather are possible with damaging wind and large hail posing the greatest threats. A few tornadoes are also possible.
