ORIGINAL POST (4:52 PM): The Storm Prediction Center has placed eastern Arkansas and western Tennessee under a slight risk for severe weather tonight. WFO MEG (National Weather Service - Memphis) has issued a Wind Advisory for the entire County Warning Area (CWA) until 7 PM tonight. Outside MEG's CWA, there are numerous Severe T'storm Warnings and Tornado Warnings. Additionally, there are three Tornado Watches in Missouri and Central-Western Arkansas. Stay tuned to this blog for the latest info concerning this situation.

Later on tonight, I will talk about the possible winter weather event. On a brief note, MEG has issued a Winter Storm Watch for most of the CWA for Fri. Night-Saturday. I will discuss this later.
