Severe Weather Doubtful Tonight

With Tornado Watches to our west, a lot of folks are wondering if we will see any tornadoes in Region 8 tonight. The short answer is NO. I think severe weather and especially tornadoes are highly unlikely. The main reason is that the greatest "spin" in the atmosphere is in Oklahoma...and some in SW Arkansas. We are too stable with not enough shear in NE Arkansas to support tornadoes. That could change tomorrow, but I doubt it... It appears the greatest threat is going to go up and around us.

Enjoy the rain though! Crack a window and listen to it fall tonight!
