A line of severe thunderstorms will move into Arkansas late tonight before weakening as they move into central Arkansas.

The storms will pose a high risk for wind damage and will likely contain pockets of rotation with occasional tornado warnings as the low level winds veer into the late night hours.


The highest risk for tornadoes will be in central Oklahoma but over time the storms will move east into Arkansas forming a line of storms with damaging winds and areas of rotation possible.
