...Flash Flood Watch Remains in Effect for Much of Northern and
Central Arkansas Through Sunday Evening...
...FLASH FLOOD WATCH REMAINS IN EFFECT THROUGH THIS EVENING...
The Flash Flood Watch continues for
* Portions of CENTRAL ARKANSAS, EASTERN ARKANSAS, NORTH CENTRAL
ARKANSAS, SOUTHEAST ARKANSAS, SOUTHWEST ARKANSAS, and WESTERN
ARKANSAS, including the following areas, in CENTRAL ARKANSAS,
Conway, Faulkner, Garland, Grant, Lonoke, Perry, Pope,
Prairie, Pulaski, Saline, White, and Yell. In EASTERN
ARKANSAS, Jackson, Monroe, and Woodruff. In NORTH CENTRAL
ARKANSAS, Baxter, Boone, Cleburne, Fulton, Independence,
Izard, Marion, Newton, Searcy, Sharp, Stone, and Van Buren. In
SOUTHEAST ARKANSAS, Arkansas and Jefferson. In SOUTHWEST
ARKANSAS, Clark, Dallas, Hot Spring, and Pike. In WESTERN
ARKANSAS, Johnson, Logan, Montgomery, Polk, and Scott.
* Through Sunday Evening
* Heavy rain has fallen over much of Arkansas in the last 24 to 36
hours and the ground has become saturated, with 2 to 5 inches
over northern areas, 2 to 3 inches over central spots, and 1 to
2 inches over southern locations. Isolated spots received higher
amounts. Continued showers and thunderstorms are expected
through Sunday, until the cold front and upper low pressure
system move through the region. This amount of rain has created
widespread flooding and flash flooding already across Arkansas,
and any additional rain will create additional flash flooding
and river flooding concerns.
* Evacuations of flood and flash flood prone areas may be
needed, and those interests along Arkansas rivers will need to
monitor this developing hazardous weather situation.
