Tornado Warning In Central Arkansas

There's a pretty distinct "hook" near Malvern, AR right now. To be more specific, it's close to the Butterfiled community. The above image clearly shows the hook and the below image is zoomed out a little.
The below image is the velocity radar product showing the winds within the storm. The bright green, right next to the bright red, is the area of concern. Green is the winds coming toward the radar site and the red is the wind going away from the radar site.

We'll continue to track the storms as they move closer to Region 8.

Eeewwww, you don't have smoothing on velocity! *gag*

;D

This 109 knt TVS headed toward Little Rock looks like bad news! That storm could be at Wynne in a while -- hopefully it weakens!

Do you think this system coming could produce tornadoes around Paragould area or just hail and high winds. My brothers family lost their house in marmaduke tornado. I am a little on edge now. My family sleeps upstairs. Maybe we should move downstairs tonight.
