Storms return to the forecast overnight into Wednesday morning. A complex of thunderstorms will be developing in central Kansas, diving south and east towards Arkansas and eastern Oklahoma throughout the overnight hours. Some could be severe, even as they weaken upon their approach to the Natural State.

TIMING

Specific timing is still a big question.  These complex of storms (called an MCS – Mesoscale Convective Complex) create their own environment as they grow in size. Sometimes they can speed up or slow down. Tonight’s MCS will move southeastward in the early morning hours, impacting Northwest Arkansas and eastern Oklahoma first, then spreading eastward into the River Valley.

NORTHWEST ARKANSAS:  2-5AM (strongest portion of storms)

RIVER VALLEY:  4AM-7AM (strongest portion of storms)

Most likely the storms will be stronger the farther north and west you live.

A round of pop-up thunderstorms could fire later by Wednesday afternoon, as surface boundaries develop after morning storms.  The majority of these will likely impact the eastern River Valley, and even more so towards Little Rock.

OMAHA (KFSM) – It will be a win or go home game for Arkansas on Monday and they are giving the ball to a freshman.

Connor Noland will get the start on the mound for the Razorbacks when they face Texas Tech at 1 p.m. in an elimination game. Noland is 3-5 this season with 4.00 earned run average while striking out 53.

Texas Tech is expected to counter with Caleb Killian as he has an 8-3 record and has been the Red Raiders number two starter all season long.

Connor Noland Starting Monday’s Elimination Game

Noland lasted just an inning in his last outing as he allowed four runs against Ole Miss in the super regional. Prior to that start, the Greenwood native had been effective as he had a 1.13 ERA in his previous 40 innings while striking out 31 batters compared to just three walks.

White House press secretary Sarah Sanders leaving Trump administration

White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders will be leaving the Trump administration at the end of June, President Donald Trump announced Thursday afternoon. 

“She is a very special person with extraordinary talents, who has done an incredible job,” Trump tweeted. 

The Trump administration has largely done away with formal press briefings, instead answering questions before cameras spontaneously on the White House driveway. 

Sanders pushed back on a report last year that said she had planned to leave the Trump administration by the end of 2018. In June 2018, she tweeted that she loved her job and was honored to work for the president. 

Trump explained that Sanders would be returning to her home in Arkansas and he hoped that she would run for governor one day, saying “she would be fantastic.” 

“Sarah, thank you for a job well done.” 

7AM – Slow-moving rain showers will track across Northwest Arkansas through the morning. Coverage of the rain will begin to spread further south into the River Valley.

WATCH: Isolated Heavy Downpours Today

12PM – There’s a chance the rain will clear some middle part of the day. Some areas may even see sunshine.

4PM – Spotty and isolated showers and storms will likely develop this afternoon with the help of daytime heating. Rain will begin to end after sunset.

WATCH: Isolated Heavy Downpours Today

Afternoon high temperatures will be near 80 degrees.
