A potent system moved through the nation's mid-section late Wednesday night and early Thursday morning.

The storm broke up a bit and is not traveling in a line, which means there is less of a chance for strong or severe storms Thursday afternoon.

The storm still has the potential to produce some heavy rain and wind for parts of eastern Arkansas, West Tennessee, and North Mississippi.  

Rainfall amounts will average a half to 3/4 of an inch of rain for most areas.  There is also the possibility for strong wind and small hail with this system.  

Areas in Northeast Mississippi, including Oxford, Ripley and Corinth could see stronger storms. The chance for severe weather is low.

The entire line will exit the Mid-South by mid-day, with the sky clearing by late afternoon as cooler, drier air moves into the area.
