A potent storm system that wreaked havoc on the Central Plains earlier today moved east through the state of Arkansas.

A tornado watch was issued for three Arkansas counties, but has since expired.

While the day started off with a few showers, Mid-Southerners enjoyed a mostly sunny day.

Rain and thunderstorms moved through overnight, but fortunately, the system producing the storms weakened as it moved east of the Mississippi River. 

Tornadoes ran through Oklahoma earlier today. These were confirmed to be as large as a mile and a half wide.

By Tuesday morning, the rain will mostly clear out, with only an isolated shower during the day Tuesday and Wednesday. A few thunderstorms could pop up by late afternoon or evening, and continue into the evening hours. Some sun will shine at times both days. 

A much calmer, drier pattern will return for the end of the week and weekend.
