A few scattered showers and thunderstorms came through the Mid-South Friday evening.

Severe Thunderstorm Warnings:

No active thunderstorm warnings at this time.

A string of severe storms struck eastern Arkansas from around 12:40-1:15 p.m. After that storm arrived, the National Weather Service placed the majority of the Mid-South under a Severe Thunderstorm Watch until 9 p.m.

Severe storms then entered Shelby County in Tennessee and DeSoto and Tunica counties in Mississippi around 1:45-2:15 p.m. 

There are no reports of significant damage at this time. However, the National Weather Service said a 52 mph wind gust was recorded in Blytheville, Arkansas.

A Flash Flood Warning is in effect for Crittenden and St. Francis counties in Arkansas until 5:15 p.m.

Saturday will be dry and sunny, but storms will return to the Mid-South on Sunday. A cold front will move into the area by late morning and cause a chance for scattered showers and storms all day. You will have dry periods in between showers, but we recommend moving Father's Day activities inside on Sunday.
