The Storm Prediction Center has upgraded much of Northwest Arkansas to an "Enhanced" risk of severe storms, and brought parts of the River Valley up to the "Slight" risk. for Friday and Friday night.

With ongoing storms this morning the question remains how long will they last? Scattered storms should form by mid-afternoon across these areas, with large-scale lift aided by an approaching mid-level trough over Montana.

Highs will still be warm and humid in the upper 80s-low 90s but may be cooler in the low-mid 80s if clouds stick around. Storms could bring large hail and damaging wind.
