Sac-Osage Hospital, Osceola

Storm Team Forecast Discussion

Scattered showers and thunderstorms are developing this afternoon in response to a cold front pushing through the region.  We've had a few severe thunderstorm warnings issued already and our northern Arkansas counties are under a severe thunderstorm watch until 8 pm.  Some of these storms are carrying wind gusts in excess of 60 mph and large hail.

This front will clear the region tonight and we'll be left with a much cooler airmass tonight and tomorrow.  High temperatures on Thursday will be in the mid 80s but we will be right back in the mid 90s this weekend.
