Across Arkansas, mostly cloudy skies were seen early this morning,
with scattered light showers over northern parts. A few spots
reported patchy fog. Early morning temperatures were mainly in the
50s over the Natural State. Today, clouds will be the rule, with
morning light convection over northern areas, then through the day,
a warm front is forecast to lift into Arkansas from the south and
develop additional showers and thunderstorms. Scattered strong to
severe storms will be possible, mainly near the front. Highs today
will reach the 70s to lower 80s. Tonight, additional showers and
thunderstorms, with heavy rain, are forecast to develop over
northern Arkansas as an upper system moves through the region and
interacts with the stalled frontal boundary. A flash flood watch is
in effect due to the expected heavy rain Friday night and over the
weekend. Lows Friday night will be in the 50s and 60s.

The weekend will stay active, with strong to severe storms on
Saturday, and the periods of heavy rainfall through Sunday. Several
inches of rain will be seen, especially over the northern half of
the state, and flash flooding and river flooding will be possible.

Now is a good time to review your severe weather safety rules. Stay
informed by monitoring the latest weather forecasts, updates and
outlooks from your National Weather Service forecast office.
