Afternoon Update - Friday

Good Friday afternoon Region 8! We know that most of you are wondering about the weather tonight, so this afternoon's newsletter will be an extensive look at the weather.

The western part of the state of Arkansas has already seen strong thunderstorms today and Region 8 is not completely clear of the threat.

Chief Meteorologist Ryan Vaughan says the tornado threat appears that it will pass south of Region 8, however, we will continue to track storms through the overnight hours.

While the worst weather appears to be going to our south, keep it tuned to the Region 8 StormTEAM in case warnings are issued for our area. Region 8 News will have full coverage of the severe weather possibility as well as any pertinent information you may need on Region 8 News at Five, Six and Ten.

All of the latest watches and warnings can also be found on kait8.com and Region8toGo.com where we are always on.
