The first round of storms will develop right here in the Mid-South rather than moving in from the west, later this evening. As an upper-level disturbance approaches, we'll see scattered thunderstorms begin to fire up over AR and move east and develop further during the overnight hours, mainly after midnight. Cluster of storms will be possible and a few could be borderline-severe, mainly over east-central AR and northwest MS (see graphic below for SLIGHT RISK area), with the main threat being large hail.
