More Active Weather

Last night was pretty active. We had some damage around Brinkley, AR and a lot of rain! I have some updates on my Facebook page by clicking here:

Unfortunately, we have more active weather over the next 36 hours. While today will be mostly dry, we have storms coming in tonight and tomorrow. Here's the outlook from the Storm Prediction Center for tomorrow, which shows an elevated risk of severe weather for all of Region 8:
If you break down the probabilities of severe weather, from Region 8 to the Ohio Valley has the best chance of seeing severe weather:
More than likely, the greater risk of severe weather may be East of us (as they will see the storms in the most unstable part of the day), but that does not mean you need to let your guard down. Here is some model data to show how this might unfold. This first map is for this evening, where large tornadoes are possible from Oklahoma to SW Missouri. We should be mostly dry for our Friday evening:
Fast-forward to lunch on Saturday and it looks quite stormy. This is when we could be dealing with some severe weather in Region 8:
Remember, you can get instant warnings on Twitter by following @Region8News and on Facebook on the Region 8 News page. 

The BEST thing to have for your mobile phone is to have it setup to receive alerts straight from KAIT. On a desktop computer, go here and setup your phone:

I'll be watching the storms tonight until 10:30 and Sarah and Bryan will be watching the storms tonight and tomorrow. This is my last day of work for a few days. :)

Have great weekend!
