We are finally getting our best rain chances in nearly a month today as an upper-level low pressure system moves directly across the region. The cold temperatures aloft (typically associated with these types of systems) and heating at the surface this morning are fueling the formation of thunderstorms, some of which contain hail. The first round is moving mainly across east-central AR and north MS early this afternoon (see image above), however as the low approaches, scattered thunderstorms will be possible across the entire metro region through sundown.
