Tornado watch lifted; all eyes looking west

Tornado Watch #106 has been lifted for most of the metro area except Fayette and Marshall counties and that will expire at 3pm. The first batch of storms is pretty much through with rain tapering off behind it.

We now look back to the west, closer to the strong low pressure center, where scattered storms are firing over southwest AR from about Hot Springs to El Dorado. These storms are intensifying and wrapping around the low located near Texarkana at this hour and moving in our direction. I expect we will see another round of scattered strong storms as it moves through during the rush hour time frame into the early evening. Some of these storms could produce large hail or damaging wind, with an isolated tornado threat.
