Weather Blog: Possibility for Thunderstorms on Thursday


The main item of interest this morning is the trends in the data regarding the track of the remnants of Gordon, and its resulting effects on the heavy rain forecast for Northwest Arkansas.

The current surface analysis shows the remnant low center of Gordon over far southeast ar this morning.

To our north, a cold front stretches from the southern great lakes across Iowa to northwest Kansas. 

Models forecast that the remnant low of Gordon will move slowly west today across southern ar, while the cold front continues to push south. 

An upper shortwave trough over the central Rockies will continue to move east toward the plains.

Warm advection within the tropical moist plume has yielded scattered showers across central and northeast ok early this morning. 

These areas will continue to be favored for more development throughout the day. 

Shower bands on the western fringes of the Gordon circulation could affect portions of West Arkansas by this afternoon.

After a relative lull in the activity tonight, expect more scattered showers and storms over the region on Friday, with the best coverage over Western Arkansas closer to the remnant low of Gordon.
