Thunderstorms, including some severe storms, will develop in the afternoon and evening on Wednesday.

Here’s a look at what to watch for:

  • Showers will be ongoing early in the day across North Arkansas
  • The highest severe storm risk is from 2pm-7pm
  • Storms will take on a bowing shape and could contain winds from 60-70mph
  • The storms will move from the northwest to the southeast at around 40mph
  • Northwest Arkansas is more likely to experience the stronger storms than farther south in Fort Smith

3pm Wednesday: Evening data shows storms already in the area and moving southeast.

After this round on Wednesday the severe risk will be much lower into Thursday and gone into the weekend.
