ORIGINAL POST FROM WEDNESDAY EVENING:
More summer-like weather has visited the Mid-South over the past several days as temperatures have climbed well into the 80s daily, though humidity has still managed to stay in check. The humidity portion of the equation will change though as we head into the end of the holiday-shortened work week and the first weekend in June.
If you've been paying any attention to the weather to our west, you know that severe thunderstorms and some tornadoes have been affecting the Plains the past couple of days. Similar to a week ago when Moore, OK was hit (though not as severe), the storm system producing the severe storms is a slow mover and will finally begin to have an effect on Mid-South weather as we head into the weekend.
|Storms over the Plains spawned multiple watches and warnings, as well as many severe weather reports Thursday afternoon.|
|SPC indicates a Slight Risk of severe storms just to our northwest on Friday|
|SPC indicates a 30% chance of severe weather for northeast AR and far west TN on Saturday afternoon and night.|
Continue to monitor our social media channels and this blog for updates on potential severe weather concerns the next few days.
