Severe storm kills 2 in Louisiana, causes damage Texas

But the governor says the southern part of the state is also under a "moderate and enhanced" risk for severe weather as well, calling it a "state-wide weather event".

Texas and Oklahoma had experienced severe weather the previous night, which Goudsward said might have dampened the storms' potential by the time they reached Arkansas. Around 3:00 a.m. scattered storms will be in the western-most counties but as the system continues to advance east, the rain starts to fan out a bit.

Additional episodes of severe weather will continue across the Southern states into the first half of April. In addition, there is a slight chance that an isolated tornado could develop. A tornado was confirmed in this area, according to emergency managers.

A surface-low will move across Texas tomorrow morning into the afternoon hours.

There will likely be two rounds of storms to impact our area. The weekend looks nice with dry conditions until Sunday night. Heavy rain capable of causing flash flooding is also a major concern with these storms.




Showers and storms will begin to redevelop as early as 12 p.m. later on Thursday.

The first wave of heavier rain will track east of the area this afternoon.

Severe storms may be ongoing in the morning in the lower Mississippi Valley.

The main threats associated with Saturday's storms will be damaging wind and large hail.

Everyone who is facing severe weather should have a plan, he said. You can view our interactive radar, get severe weather alerts, and watch our video updates on the go, when you want it, at your convenience, all in the palm of your hand. We will have a fair amount of instability available, and bulk shear is sufficient to produce supercell thunderstorms. All three tornado touchdowns were rated EF-1, with estimated winds between 90 and 100 miles per hour, and were sighted near Milo and west of Knoxville.
