Take a look at how colorful the weather map is today with plenty of watches, advisories and warnings.
Severe thunderstorms are expected to develop later today across the southern and central plains states. There is the threat for strong and damaging tornadoes in a few areas. Sadly, this threat will roll east over the next few days.
Another threat is for extremely heavy rain totals in the Ozarks and nearby areas. Some long range models show 5 to 10 inches during the week ahead with a bullseye across western Arkansas.
