Severe weather will be possible with any of these

southwest sections of the state late this afternoon and into the
evening hours...but all areas of Arkansas could see some severe
weather through early Saturday morning. Some locally heavy
rainfall will also be possible...with an isolated flash flood
threat developing. The severe potential with this system will end
by day break Saturday.
