Unsettled now, hot and steamy later!

The threat for storms remains for the rest of Sunday before clearing for most Monday.
We will be working a cold front and associated storms through the area for the rest of the night. Early this afternoon the line of strongest storms was stepping into our Arkansas counties. This line will keep moving east as the afternoon turns into the evening, all the while, storms will intensify. A severe thunderstorm watch is in effect until 9:00 pm for the enter area north of Mississippi. Our main impacts from this line through late evening will be gusty winds, lightning, heavy rain and medium to large hail. Once the sun goes down storms will lose their fuel and weaken as they move east. Leftover showers and thunderstorms may redevelop east of Fayette County tomorrow as the aforementioned front slows down. The rest of us see gradual clearing but not much cooling; highs Monday will stay near 90°. Tuesday through next weekend we crank the heat and never look back. Highs will be in the low to mid 90s for the duration along with a big spike in mugginess. The two coupled together will give us a heat index, or feels like temperature, very close to 100°. There won't be much relief from the heat; your rain chance is between 10-20% Thursday and Friday for a few pop up thunderstorms.

Enjoy the rest of your Sunday night and stay weather ready!
