There is an ENHANCED risk of severe weather through tonight in the northern half of Arkansas (north of Little Rock). There is a MODERATE risk of severe storms farther north in Missouri, Illinois, Indiana, and Kentucky.
With the potential for severe weather in the forecast, here is a refresher of the various severe thunderstorm risk categories that are issued by the Storm Prediction Center.
Severe Weather Awareness Week runs from February 26th through March 4th in Arkansas. Today's topic is flash flooding. High water problems are usually caused by slow-moving thunderstorms, or thunderstorms repeatedly moving over the same areas. Water comes down faster than it can be carried away. It is a thunderstorm's deadliest hazard. At least half of flash flood deaths occur in automobiles (people driving into flood water).
Our next Skywarn spotter training class is scheduled for this Tuesday, February 28th at 6:00 pm in Jasper, AR (Newton County). The class is free and open to the public.
