JONESBORO, Ark. (KAIT) - A storm system could bring strong, damaging winds, heavy rains, with the possibility of severe weather Sunday evening into early Monday.

According to Region 8 Meteorologist Aaron Castleberry, there is a low threat for severe weather but a threat nonetheless.

“The main threat will be strong, damaging winds but we cannot rule out a brief spin-up tornado,” Castleberry said.

There is also the possibility of some flash flooding, especially due to how dry the ground currently is.

A cold front will start to move in from the northwest and should act as a focal point for the storms to develop, Castleberry said.

As for timing, Castleberry said the storms should move into Southeast Missouri between 10 p.m. and midnight Sunday and head south.
