...FLOOD WATCH REMAINS IN EFFECT THROUGH SATURDAY EVENING...

The Flood Watch continues for

* Portions of CENTRAL ARKANSAS, EASTERN ARKANSAS, NORTH CENTRAL
  ARKANSAS, SOUTHEAST ARKANSAS, SOUTHWEST ARKANSAS, and WESTERN
  ARKANSAS, including the following areas, in CENTRAL ARKANSAS,
  Faulkner, Garland, Grant, Lonoke, Perry, Prairie, Pulaski,
  Saline, and White. In EASTERN ARKANSAS, Jackson, Monroe, and
  Woodruff. In NORTH CENTRAL ARKANSAS, Cleburne and
  Independence. In SOUTHEAST ARKANSAS, Arkansas, Bradley,
  Cleveland, Desha, Drew, Jefferson, and Lincoln. In SOUTHWEST
  ARKANSAS, Calhoun, Clark, Dallas, Hot Spring, Ouachita, and
  Pike. In WESTERN ARKANSAS, Montgomery and Polk.

* Through Saturday evening

* Heavy to excessive rain fell across Arkansas the last three
  days, with 3 to 6 inch amounts common and locally over 8
  inches. Rain and isolated thunderstorms were ongoing this
  morning from Texarkana to Little Rock and Jonesboro.
  Precipitation will shift into mainly the northwest half of the
  state tonight. Another round of thunderstorms will hit the
  region on Saturday. The forecast calls from an additional 1 to 3
  inches of rain, with locally over 4 inches across the north and
  west.

* Given the recent heavy rainfall, the ground has become saturated
  in much of the region. The runoff potential has increased,
  making flash flooding and river flooding more likely. 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.

.PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

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.
