SHREVEPORT – As the possibility of storms mounts this coming weekend, residents of South Arkansas are urged to keep an eye to the sky as a severe weather outbreak is possible on Saturday.
“A Moderate or Enhanced Risk for severe thunderstorms covers much of our region on Saturday. Strong to severe storms will likely begin to develop during the morning hours, but the timing of greatest risk is expected during the hours of afternoon peak heating and possibly extending into the early evening hours.” Meteorologists said. “There will likely be multiple rounds of storms throughout much of Saturday into Saturday night. Large hail, damaging winds and tornadoes will be the primary threats. Locally heavy rainfall may also lead to isolated flash flooding.”
Cities in Arkansas including El Dorado, Camden, and Crossett are in the areas of greatest threat for a tornado on Saturday.
