Your Weather Briefing for Northwest Arkansas
Weather Briefing Last Update: 4:30 p.m. cdt Wednesday, August 21, 2019

Widely scattered showers and thunderstorms have developed this afternoon across northwest Arkansas. A few of these thunderstorms could be strong to severe with strong winds and hail the main concern. In addition to the potential of strong to severe storms, if the storms move across the same locations, then localized flooding will be possible as well. Frequent lightning can also be expected with these storms. This activity is expected to continue into the early evening hours and should fade with the loss of daytime heating.

The heat will not be the big weather story over the next several days as the weather pattern becomes more unsettled across the region as a frontal boundary sags into the area and stalls out as a series of weather disturbances embedded in the northwesterly flow aloft affect northwest Arkansan's. This will result in several rounds of showers and thunderstorms across northwest Arkansas into the weekend. Some of the thunderstorms could again be strong to severe during this time with locally heavy rainfall also possible.
