Severe storms possible today

The weather service said it will be watching this system closely and will be refining its forecasts over the next few days.

Each day focuses on a different topic, and today's is severe thunderstorms.

Thunderstorms are a common occurrence each spring and summer across the Midwest.

The larger area of storms is moving in from Central Oklahoma and tracking northeast at around 35mph.

Areas west of Little Rock face an enhanced risk for thunderstorms to turn severe Wednesday night and into early Thursday, according to the National Weather Service's North Little Rock office. Parts of Kentucky are under a SLIGHT risk of severe weather. A few storms may become severe mainly this afternoon and evening with damaging winds and large hail being the primary hazards. Persons in these areas should be on the lookout for threatening weather conditions and listen for later statements and possible warnings.

Showers and thunderstorms will move across the area throughout the day, the heaviest rain will be in the afternoon and into late evening with wind gusts as high as 20 miles per hour. If you can hear thunder, weather service officials say you are close enough to be in danger from lightning.
