A low-pressure system may develop on Friday to the northwest with a northward moving warm front which will support increased moisture and *fuel for thunderstorms* moving into the state, and with a southwest flow aloft pattern will support the potential of scattered thunderstorms, and perhaps strong thunderstorms in parts of the state and near the region on Friday.
We must monitor strength, timing, placement of the features and ingredients which will determine the extent of any strong to severe thunderstorm threat if it even develops. There is still uncertainty on the details regarding Friday which is to be expected 4-5 days out. Stay tuned to updates regarding this.
Depending on the placement of the warm-front and low-pressure system another round of showers and thunderstorms ahead of the next system is possible on Saturday into Monday. The overall details and the specifics regarding this are uncertain, but this will be watched for the potential of some strong storms should the ingredients align.
This can change, but it’s best to stay tuned to the very latest with us at Arkansas Weather Watchers. We just wanted to give a possible heads up given things we are seeing.
