The Flash Flood Watch continues for

  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

* From this evening through Sunday evening

* Several periods of rain, heavy at times, will create areas of
  flash and river flooding across much of Arkansas. On Wednesday,
  one to three inches of rain, with some locations receiving
  higher amounts, fell across Arkansas. Friday night and over the
  weekend, additional weather systems will bring rain, very heavy
  at times to Arkansas. An additional two to four inches of rain,
  with locally higher amounts, will be possible. A few localized
  areas, especially in northwest and northern Arkansas, may see
  rainfall amounts in excess of five to seven inches. This amount
  of rain will create flash flooding conditions, as well as rises
  on rivers that will be significant.

* 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.


If you are in the watch area, keep informed, and be ready for
quick action if flash flooding is observed or if a warning is
issued. Persons living in low lying areas along main-stem rivers
should monitor the latest forecast and be ready to evacuate to
higher ground.

Do not drive your vehicle into areas where water covers the road
to unknown depths. Take a different route to reach your
destination or wait until the water recedes. Remember, most flood
related deaths occur in automobiles and flooding is the leading
cause of weather related deaths.

A Flash Flood Watch means that conditions may develop that lead
to flash flooding. Flash flooding is a very dangerous situation.
You should monitor later forecasts and be prepared to take action
should Flash Flood Warnings be issued.
