This Hazardous Weather Outlook is for a large part of Arkansas.

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight

The remnants of Tropical Storm Cindy will approach from the Gulf
Coast today, and will arrive in southern Arkansas late tonight.
Surrounding the system, areas of heavy rain and embedded
thunderstorms will spread across the region. Rain will be heaviest
and most widespread across the southeast half of the state.

A few storms may be severe this afternoon and evening in the
southeast. In addition to the possibility of damaging winds, an
isolated brief and weak tornado or two may be spawned.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Friday Through Wednesday

Areas of rain will continue Friday morning. Rain could be heavy
south and east of Little Rock.

Through Friday, two to five inches of rain will be possible across
the southern and eastern counties, with a Flash Flood Watch posted.
The atmosphere will be loaded with moisture, and this could lead to
locally more than five inches of precipitation, especially along the
track of the tropical system.

The system will exit the region toward the Tennessee Valley Friday
afternoon. This will happen as a cold front pushes into Arkansas
from the Plains.

The front will bring continued chances of hit and miss thunderstorms
through the first part of the weekend. Drier air will build behind
the front, with little to no rain from Sunday into the middle of
next week.

.Spotter Information Statement...

Spotter activation may be needed this afternoon and evening.
