Scroll down for the 7-day forecast! 🌤️⛅⛈️🌞☔
Another Freeze Watch plus storms are coming for a large part of Arkansas. Showers and thunderstorms are expected to return to Arkansas Thursday and into Thursday night, along and ahead of a cold front.
The potential for severe weather should remain isolated to the southwestern half the state tonight, with the main hazards consisting of damaging winds and large hail. Also, the Weather Service said they can’t rule out a few tornadoes, but that would be in extreme southwestern Arkansas. Heavy rainfall could be seen across portions of southern Arkansas as well, resulting in some local flooding through Thursday night.
The Freeze Watch is in effect from late Friday night through Saturday morning. Expect temps as low as 30. This doesn’t seem too cold, but it’s enough to kill crops and other sensitive vegetation. Take steps now to protect tender plants from the cold.
It could also possibly damage outdoor plumbing, so get an insulated cup to cover your faucets outside. To prevent freezing and possible bursting of outdoor water pipes they should be wrapped, drained, or allowed to drip slowly. Those that have in-ground sprinkler systems should drain them and cover above- ground pipes to protect them from freezing.
