JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) - Today holds a high chance of severe weather across Region 8. As we move throughout the day we will watch a thunderstorm complex make its way across the Southern Plains.
As they move towards Region 8 be sure to be prepared for severe weather. The system will move into the Ozark region around noon and then make it's way into the Jonesboro area near 3 p.m.
We will finally see the system cross the Mississippi River by the time we head into the late afternoon hours. The primary threats associated with the storms today will be a high chance of lightning, a high chance of damaging winds, a medium chance of damaging hail and a low chance of a tornado.
Areas that see more thunderstorms may also experience minor flooding. This will not be our only chance for severe weather this week as we will see a chance of severe storms all of the way through Saturday.
