...FLOOD WATCH NOW IN EFFECT THROUGH SATURDAY EVENING...
The Flood Watch is now in effect for
* Portions of CENTRAL ARKANSAS, EASTERN ARKANSAS, NORTH CENTRAL
ARKANSAS, SOUTHEAST ARKANSAS, SOUTHWEST ARKANSAS, and WESTERN

* Through Saturday evening
* Three to locally more than five inches of rain occurred in much
of southern, central, and eastern Arkansas the last couple of
days. Several more rounds of showers and isolated thunderstorms
are in the forecast through Saturday as a front lifts toward the
state from the Gulf Coast, and a storm system arrives from the
Plains. Two to four inches of additional precipitation is in
the forecast, with locally higher amounts.
* Given recent heavy rain, the ground is saturated and cannot hold
much additional moisture. There have already been numerous high
water reports, including flooding of roads and road closures. If
expected rainfall amounts are realized, this could become a
dangerous situation, with water possibly getting into homes and
businesses in places.
A Flood Watch means there is a potential for for high water
problems based on the current forecast of heavy rain.
You should monitor later forecasts and be alert for possible
Flood Warnings. Those living in areas prone to flooding should be
prepared to take action should flooding develop.
