Scattered showers and thunderstorms will begin developing in South Arkansas on Tuesday afternoon and may continue into the evening.

The National Weather Service in Shreveport said a few storms could become intense, containing strong gusty winds.

No widespread severe weather is expected.

Looking ahead to the Thanksgiving holiday, South Arkansas residents may expect another storm system to arrive on Thursday. This will bring a cold front through the region by Saturday with showers and thunderstorms increasing from northwest to southeast from late week into the weekend.

Not all of the region will see showers and storms on Thanksgiving Day as the best rain chances will remain along and north of the Interstate 30 corridor before expanding farther southeast on Friday through Saturday.

There may be a threat for some strong to severe thunderstorms on Saturday along and just ahead of the cold front.
