Friday brings a welcome break between storms on Vancouver Island

Saturday forecast Showers arrive later today

South Arkansas faces a severe weather threat going into the weekend, forecasters say, and residents in the state's north could see a brief bout of wintry weather as the system exits.

WINTER-LIKE DAY SATURDAY: While it looks like the rain will end very early in the day, Saturday will be mostly cloudy, windy, cold and raw. Keep in mind, a Enhanced Risk of severe weather is 3 out of 5 on the severe weather index.

The enhanced risk means multiple severe storms are possible, resulting in hail up to 2 inches in diameter and wind speeds of 75 miles per hour or greater.

For the second time this week, we have another chance for strong to severe thunderstorms moving into central MS by late Friday into the wee hours of Saturday. A line of strong storms with gusty winds will push through the state tomorrow night; the main window for north and central Alabama will come from 10 p.m. through 4 a.m.

The latest run of FutureTrack shows the line of storms dropping south out of the ArkLaTex by midnight on Saturday. However, not all of us will be rain-free. However, most will wake up to temperatures in the 40s on Saturday, so have at least a light jacket handy. We'll refine that timing for the all-important Saturday forecast with many outdoor activities hanging in the balance throughout the Valley and Plains. On Friday, most places will top out in the mid to upper 70s.

Otherwise, on Saturday, expect scattered showers. Freezing temperatures are possible Sunday morning, with a mostly sunny sky after that.
