UPDATE: Cold Front to Bring Storms Monday

monday severe threat

UPDATE: A Severe T-Storm Watch has been issued for Northwest Arkansas and portions of the River Valley until 4PM Monday afternoon.

We are tracking a cold front that will arrive Monday afternoon sparking showers and storms. Due to the amount of instability and moisture in the atmosphere, scattered strong to severe storms will be possible Monday afternoon and evening.

Storms should start to develop during the early afternoon hours Monday as the front pushes into eastern Oklahoma.

With afternoon temperatures warming into the upper 80′s and low 90′s and dew points soaring into the upper 60′s and low 70′s, instability values will be high across the area. This instability will act as fuel for the storms by early afternoon.

The main threat with storms Monday afternoon and evening will be gusty winds and large hail. The tornado threat will remain very low.

The front will push to the south on Tuesday before returning north on Wednesday and eventually stalling in the area mid to late week. This will be the focus for more scattered storms late week. 

More updates to come.
