As of 8pm, SPC has greatly reduced the slight risk area to where ongoing strong to severe thunderstorms are located, specifically part of Louisiana into the Ark-La-Miss region. While general t'storm activity is possible in the metro overnight, it'll be more of the type that makes for good sleeping weather than anything else! As indicated below in our initial post, the initial severe threat was minimal to begin with and we're glad to see the slight risk cut way back.
|Updated convective outlook from SPC, issued at 8pm|
The Storm Prediction Center has placed much of the metro - specifically those counties bordering the Mississippi River - in a slight risk for possible severe weather later today.
