Tornado Warnings in Northern Arkansas

A few tornado warnings have been issued for a storm moving through northern Arkansas. Currently, the storm is tracking to the NE at 40mph.

Assuming the storm stays together and keeps moving to the northeast (with a slight turn to the east), it appears that it could move in to an area from Doniphan, Missouri to Kennett, Missouri. Yes, that is wide area but the storm could start to make a move towards the east.

It is still an hour away from Doniphan and perhaps an hour 45 minutes away from Kennett. (Assuming it continues to move at 40mph.)

By the way, if you look at the radar imagery above and notice it isn't showing any rain in southeast Missouri, it is because we are looking at the storm from the Little Rock, Arkansas NWS radar site.

Hi John,
I'm curious - what program are you using to look at the radar in the screenshot you provided? Is it available to the public?

Thanks, have a good night!
