Severe weather threat Friday afternoon through early Saturday morning

Inc. All rights reserved. This material may not be published broadcast rewritten or redistributed

We'll see warm and windy conditions on Thursday, the highs should reach the low 80s with gusty south winds of 20-30 miles per hour.

Scattered severe storms will be possible Friday, and that could impact the Hogeye Marathon Expo in downtown Springdale. By Saturday the front moves away and we are looking for sunny and dry weather for the weekend.

Forecasters expect Saturday to be a washout and are concerned flooding and severe storms could come with it. Check in with the First Alert Storm Team on News 5 over the next few days, too. The main threats are looking to be more high winds and large hail, but an isolated tornado can't be ruled out.

A system set to move through Arkansas on Friday and into Saturday will bring the potential for severe storms across the entire state, forecasters say. Contrary to popular belief, these sirens are not meant to be heard indoors - they are to warn people who are outside that severe weather is threatening and they should take shelter.

Your First Alert 7-Day Planning Forecast is always available on the WECT Weather App! We'll keep mostly cloudy skies Saturday and Sunday with a few flurries possible.

There is the possibility we could see the severe weather threat ramp up during the afternoon and evening for east Alabama if this system slows down a bit. Highs Sunday and Monday will only reach the 60s, with overnight lows Sunday night in the 40s near the coast and 30s inland. Nights will drop back to near freezing. This will make for an easy Wednesday forecast with plenty of sunshine and highs into the lower 70s. We will enjoy a nice warming trend over the latter half of the week.
