WATCH: Today’s Severe Storm Timeline

This is an archived article and the information in the article may be outdated. Please look at the time stamp on the story to see when it was last updated.

The big weather pattern over the Southern Plains brings us two rounds of severe weather. Today storm chances increase late afternoon as a warm front lifts north. Tomorrow’s storm chances are as a cold front moves through. There’s a chance for storms in between the two rounds, but these likely won’t be severe.

The greatest chance for severe weather will be further south (southern Arkansas). There's a level 2 out of 5 risk south of I-40. Main threats are hail and gusty winds, but a tornado cannot be ruled out.


1PM - We're mainly clear until early afternoon. A few stray showers and storms may develop ahead of the severe weather.

3PM - The severe weather risk starts to ramp up by mid-afternoon. These storms will be scattered as a warm front lifts to the north.

5PM - Strong to severe storms are possible as the warm front moves through. The main time range for the strongest storms will be between 3PM and 7PM.

7PM - The severe risk dies down after 7PM. A few storms may linger after sunset, but the severe risk will be much lower.
