A line of strong storms moving through Arkansas will move through the WMC Action News 5 coverage area overnight into early Saturday morning.

Tishomingo County, Mississippi, which is adjacent to the Shoals on the west side, already is under a flash flood watch, effective from 1 a.m. Saturday to 1 a.m. Sunday. It's the third-highest of five categories of storm probabilities used by the Storm Prediction Center.

The National Weather Service issued at 2:20 p.m., a tornado watch in effect until 9 p.m. for Nodaway County. They are expected to enter the Tulsa area around 3 p.m.

"Power outages and tree damage are possible due to the ice", the Weather Service said.

Forecasters said the watch would continue through late Monday night.
