Heavy rain will hit most of the state Thursday, and some storms may be capable of producing damaging winds but they will be isolated, with most areas of the state only experiencing heavy rainfall and possibly some hail, officials from the National Weather service reported.

Showers and thunderstorms will affect most of the state Thursday, but severe storms are going to be isolated, according to the National Weather Service.

Heavy rain will hit most of the state Thursday, and some storms may be capable of producing damaging winds but most areas of the state will experience only heavy rainfall and possibly some hail, the National Weather service said. A few showers and storms will remain through midnight, but most should decrease after sunset, forecasters said.

The state saw thunder and lightning Wednesday, amounting to 8,600 lightning strikes from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m., weather service meteorologist Sean Clark said.

No major lightning damage was reported Wednesday, but on Monday an ambulance in Hot Springs was hit by lightning while taking a patient to a hospital. No one was injured; however, the ambulance was immediately put out of service and its electrical systems were badly damaged, Clark said.

I'm really getting tired of the hail potential we've been having this spring & early summer. I dont remember ever having this many hail threats. Russian weather control at it again....
