June 25, 2023

An upper level storm system via a powerful jet axis moved around the periphery of High Pressure and drove a cold front into a very unstable atmosphere which provided the lifting mechanism for air parcels which would become severe thunderstorms. The cold front arrived during the heating of the day and plenty of CAPE was present to promote powerful updrafts that would suspend large hailstones. The collapsing of storms created a rush of cooler air (outflow) sending other storms downstream that would produce damaging winds. A couple embedded tornadoes were also noted during this period given the favorable atmosphere across central Arkansas.

March 31, 2023

A powerful storm system and associated upper trough propagated across the Central Plains into the the Mid-Mississippi Valley. Showers and thunderstorms developed in response to the passing trough triggering strong to severe thunderstorms across Arkansas.

August 8, 2022

As August began, drought conditions were widespread in Arkansas, with dryness the most noticeable in northern and western sections of the state. Above normal temperatures were also common. On the 8th, a cold front approached from the north, and brought chances of rain and promised temporary relief from the heat.||Ahead of the front, thermometers showed readings in the 90s. During peak heating, thunderstorms popped up quickly in the northern half of the state. Some of the storms cranked out damaging winds. Trees were downed at Gravel Ridge and Macon (both in Pulaski County), with one tree on a fence. More trees were toppled in west Little Rock (Pulaski County). The trees fell on power lines and a home, and power outages lasted into the overnight hours for some residents. Tree damage was also noted in Hot Springs (Garland County), and several utility poles were snapped. This was the most severe weather reported during the month.||Locations with an inch or more of rainfall were few and far between. Bogg Springs (Polk County) received 2.02 inches of rain, 1.16 inches at Mena (Polk County), 1.07 inches at Hot Springs (Garland County), and 1.00 inch at Batesville (Independence County).

May 15, 2022

For much of the state, May 13th was the end of the heatwave as a cold front moved into the area and showers and thunderstorms developed. Thunderstorms were most widespread on the 15th with several reports of hail as large as golf balls and numerous wind damage reports. A wind gust of 58 mph was recorded at the Jacksonville/LR Air Force Base.||Some relief (cooler air) came on the 15th in the form of a cold front. At the same time, there were strong to severe storms ahead of the front. Storms were sure to thrive given an enormous amount of energy in place. Models showed a line of storms traversing the region from northwest to southeast during the afternoon, and these were expected to unleash strong to damaging winds. Updrafts into some storms were likely to be powerful enough to suspend hailstones aloft, and allow them to grow. So, very large hail was possible. There were already a few hailstorms on the 14th, with lime size hail at Jasper (Newton County), and golf ball size hail at Harrison (Boone County). Tornadoes were much less likely because steering winds were generally weak (30 knots or less), and there was not much shear.||Between 1100 am and 1200 pm CST, a large cluster of storms arrived from Missouri. Ahead of the cluster, isolated to scattered storms erupted mainly north and west of Little Rock (Pulaski County). Golf ball size hail was reported at Boxley (Newton County) and the west side of Russellville (Pope County). There was half dollar size hail at London and just north of Russellville (both in Pope County), and quarter size stones at Chickalah (Yell County), Nimrod (Perry County), and Paris (Logan County).||As the afternoon progressed, the cluster of storms worked from northwest into central and southeast Arkansas. Numerous trees and power lines were downed, with some trees on houses. At least 50,000 power outages were noted at one point. At Russellville (Pope County), a tree fell on a vehicle, and two people had to be extricated and taken to the hospital. A tree also came down on a travel trailer close to Hazen (Prairie County). Fallen trees blocked Highway 7 near Fourche Junction (Perry County), Highway 46 at Sheridan (Grant County), and Highway 54 at Sulphur Springs (Jefferson County). Roads were blocked by trees at a campground northeast of Fifty Six (Stone County). A roof was blown off of a storage building west of Hot Springs (Garland County).||There was a 58 mph gust at the Little Rock Air Force Base (Pulaski County), a 56 mph gust at McCreanor (Lonoke County), a 55 mph gust at Little Rock National Airport (Pulaski County), and a 54 mph gust at the Stuttgart Airport in Fairmount (Prairie County).

April 17, 2022

With a front positioned along the Missouri border, a few strong storms developed and moved along it during the evening hours April 15th leading to reports of large hail and wind damage. Additional storms developed across eastern Oklahoma later that night into the 16th and moved southeastward across potions of western and southern Arkansas. Large hail was the most common severe weather report, with some spotty wind damage occurring as well.||The cold front that moved through on the 13th (bringing cooler air/a temporary end to active weather) was headed back into the state from the Gulf Coast. The front was the focus for a massive storm toward the Missouri border in the evening. Between 700 pm and 1000 pm CDT, the storm tracked east/southeast along the front through Baxter, Fulton, Sharp, Lawrence, Greene, Craighead, and Mississippi Counties. Along the way, the storm unleashed huge hail that damaged structures and vehicles. Hail was softball size or larger at Cherokee Village (Sharp County) and five miles west of Viola (Fulton County). ||The radar detected strong rotation in the storm, and there were indications the storm may be tornadic. Several Tornado Warnings were issued, and Tornado Emergencies were declared given damage reports and sightings of funnels reaching the ground. However, it appears most of the damage was caused by hail, and there were no confirmations of tornadoes during a damage survey.||Early on the 16th, a new cold front approached from the northwest, and triggered more storms across the western counties. Before 700 am CDT, trees and powerlines were downed at Waldron (Scott County), and two to three inches of rain was measured. A barn was damaged, a tree was blown onto a house, and there was golf ball size hail at Oden (Montgomery County). More trees were toppled at Mount Ida (Montgomery County), and the west side of town lost power. Rain came down in buckets, with 1.59 inches of precipitation in only 23 minutes! A tree fell on a car at Silver (Montgomery County), and quarter size hail was reported at Bismarck (Hot Spring County) and Caulksville (Logan County).
