The overall severe weather threat is low, but strong straight line winds are the main risk.

Most of your Friday will likely be quiet with low rain chances throughout the day. Michigan Committee for Severe Weather Awareness tells us "tornadoes generally develop from severe thunderstorms, and are more likely to occur when warm, humid air along the ground is forced up rapidly by cooler air and develops into a spinning funnel".

Overnight low temperatures are forecast to be in the upper 20s to mid-30s across Arkansas.

South Alabama will have a marginal risk on Saturday as well. The Storm Prediction Center indicates that we will see a "slight" risk for severe storms.

Friday evening we will be tracking a line of heavy rainfall with embedded storms that will approach west Alabama after 7 p.m.

Your WIS First Alert Weather Team has declared Saturday as an Alert Day.

Saturday starts in the 60s, drops to the 40s once the front passes by mid-morning and then bounces back to the 50s during the afternoon hours.

We'll be able to better refine and define this risk tomorrow. Clouds will increase Sunday night, but models continue to trend drier with this impulse and it looks like any rain late Sunday night will be very light and spotty. More benign weather is in store for the middle part of next week, with temperatures near to slightly below normal with lows in the 40s and lower 50s and highs in the 70s. We swing between attractive sunny, warm days and dreary grey ones; calm and quiet conditions and stormy patterns.
