Thunderstorm Chances Continue

An upper level closed low can be seen spinning over eastern Arkansas this morning on the water vapor satellite imagery.

The next piece of energy rotating around the closed low will push into western Alabama later this morning… as the low slowly shifts eastward.

We expect showers and thunderstorms to develop again this morning across the area. Scattered to numerous thunderstorms may continue into the evening hours tonight as well.

No organized severe weather is expected, however the stronger storms will produce strong winds, frequent lightning strikes and heavy rain.

As long as the upper low remains in our area through mid-week, we can expect to see enhanced chances of mainly afternoon and evening showers and thunderstorms.

It looks as though the better rain chances will shift to the eastern sections of the state on Tuesday and Wednesday.

Weather models take the low into northern Georgia on Thursday with drier air filtering into the area on the west side of the low.

If this happens, it would lead to drier weather conditions for the end of the week.
