Severe weather threat diminishes; rain to continue
The Storm Prediction Center has dropped the Severe Thunderstorm Watch that was in effect for eastern Arkansas and portions of Missouri. In fact, the line of thunderstorms that was moving into the Mid-South has diminished in intensity significantly and there is hardly any lightning even left at 7:30pm. Continuous rain, some potentially heavy, will continue to move into the region over the next few hours, however. Look for about an inch of rain, with some locations picking up a couple of inches before it tapers off late tonight.
