Weather Summary for Arkansas
National Weather Service Little Rock AR
445 PM CST Thu Feb 22 2018

Heavy rainfall that fell over the last several days gave way to
cloudy conditions across much of Arkansas on Thursday morning.
The break in rainfall was short lived as a new upper level
disturbance brought precipitation back to the Natural State this
afternoon.

A large area of showers and thunderstorms moved into southwest
Arkansas by midday, spreading into much of the central sections by
mid afternoon. Afternoon temperatures had remained nearly steady
with readings mainly in the 40s.

Light to moderate rainfall, some heavy at times, will continue
throughout the night for nearly all of Arkansas. Heaviest
rainfall is expected to occur along I-30/US-67 corridor, where 1
to 3 inches of additional rain will be possible. Locally higher
amounts remain possible. Given the already saturated soils, expect
the potential for flash and river flooding to continue for most
areas.

More heavy rain will be seen on Friday which will only worsen
flooding concerns across some parts of the state. Temperatures on
Friday will warm through the day due to a warm front lifting
north across the state. High temperatures will vary from the mid
50s across northwest Arkansas to mid and upper 70s across
southeast Arkansas.

Some strong to severe thunderstorms will be possible across the
area on Saturday, mainly during the afternoon and evening hours
just ahead of the cold front. Total rainfall accumulation between
Thursday and Saturday will generally be in the 2 to 4 inch range
with locally higher amounts. Temperatures will top out in the upper
60s to upper 70s on Saturday. Behind the front, high pressure
will bring dry conditions and slightly cooler temperatures to the
state beginning Sunday.
