Severe weather in South Arkansas' Friday forecast

Severe weather in South Arkansas' Friday forecast

As for Acadiana, areas north of the interstate are in a slight risk (15%) while communities closer to the coast are under a marginal risk (5%) for the line of storms to produce damaging wind gusts up to 60 miles per hour, large hail and maybe even a quick spin up tornado.

This front has the possibility to produce a line of strong to severe storms similar to what we saw Tuesday night. Ahead of this front look for a mostly cloudy sky Friday with a chance for a scattered shower or thunderstorm.

Temperatures are upside down on Saturday - we'll begin the day in the mid to upper 60s, but as the front swings through, temperatures will drop into the 50s during the afternoon. However, most will wake up to temperatures in the 40s on Saturday, so have at least a light jacket handy.

South Alabama will have a marginal risk on Saturday as well. A small portion of our viewing area is under a Slight Risk at this time, mainly areas east of I-95 toward the Lowcountry. The main threat will come from strong straight-line winds, although a brief isolated tornado can't be ruled out. A touch of drizzle is possible at times, and temperatures will fall through the 50s during the morning, possibly reaching the 40s over north Alabama by afternoon.

Fortnite vending machines, hints at more Overwatch PvE, and intriguing teaser trailers
Another week has rolled around and that means a new set of weekly challenges for Fortnite Battle Royale's Battle Pass. Higher tiers will require more materials, with Epic tier weapons, for example, costing a staggering 500 materials.

Your WIS First Alert Weather Team has declared Saturday as an Alert Day.

At the very least, it should be much windier and chillier by Saturday morning. "According to the National Weather Service, these conditions are most likely to occur in the spring and summer months". Colder pockets could reach the 20s, and frost is likely.

Clouds will continue to increase today. On the positive side, there's a decent chance this will be the last widespread frost threat of the season.
