From the National Weather Service, North Little Rock

"A line of thunderstorm is expected to accompany a cold front as it moves across the state this evening and overnight. The primary hazard associated with these storms is expected to be strong to damaging wind gusts, however isolated tornadoes cannot be ruled out. The threat for flooding appears to be very low due to ongoing drought conditions and the threat for large hail is low as well. 

  The most likely time for storms across Arkansas is 5 to 8 PM in the northwest, 8 to midnight central, and after midnight for the east and southeastern portions of the state. Storms in the northwest part of the state are most likely to produce severe weather.    Isolated to scattered showers and thunderstorms may persist behind the front, but the threat of severe storms behind the cold front is very low. Even though it's December, severe storms are still possible here in Arkansas. Be prepared for the possibility of severe thunderstorm warnings this evening and overnight.    If you have outdoor plans this evening, make sure you check the latest weather conditions/forecast before heading out.
