...FLASH FLOOD WATCH IN EFFECT FROM FRIDAY EVENING THROUGH SUNDAY
EVENING...

The National Weather Service in Little Rock has issued a

* Flash Flood Watch 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.

* From Friday 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,
  1 to 2 inches of rain, with some locations receiving higher
  amounts, fell across Arkansas as an upper level and surface
  system move through the region. Friday night and over the
  weekend, additional weather systems will bring rain, heavy at
  times to Arkansas. At this time, an additional 3 to 6 inches of
  rain, with locally higher amounts, will be possible. A few
  isolated locations, especially in northwest and northern
  Arkansas, may approach 6 to 7 inches of rain. This amount of
  rain will create dangerous 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 dangerous weather situation.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

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.
