Areas where the clouds are thinning out will have the best chance of stronger storms. While wind gusts will be the main threat, there is also a low-end chance of a tornado too.

Storms are forecast to enter eastern Arkansas between 4 p.m. and 7 p.m. Tuesday.

A cluster of thunderstorms has formed over central Texas and will be moving east-southeast.

Forecasters say gusty winds are likely, followed by falling temperatures as a cold front crosses the region.
