...FLASH FLOOD WATCH REMAINS IN EFFECT THROUGH THIS EVENING...

The Flash 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,
  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.

* Through Sunday Evening

* Heavy rain has fallen over much of Arkansas in the last 24 to 36
  hours and the ground has become saturated, with 2 to 5 inches
  over northern areas, 2 to 3 inches over central spots, and 1 to
  2 inches over southern locations. Isolated spots received higher
  amounts. Continued showers and thunderstorms are expected
  through Sunday, until the cold front and upper low pressure
  system move through the region. This amount of rain has created
  widespread flooding and flash flooding already across Arkansas,
  and any additional rain will create additional flash flooding
  and river flooding concerns.

* 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.

...FLASH FLOOD WATCH REMAINS IN EFFECT THROUGH THIS EVENING...

The Flash Flood Watch continues for

* Portions of SOUTHEAST ARKANSAS and SOUTHWEST ARKANSAS,
  including the following areas, in SOUTHEAST ARKANSAS, Bradley,
  Cleveland, Desha, Drew, and Lincoln. In SOUTHWEST ARKANSAS,
  Calhoun and Ouachita.

* Through Sunday Evening

* Showers and thunderstorms, with heavy rain, will overspread
  southern Arkansas Sunday morning and last to Sunday evening.
  Saturday night, 1 to 2 inches of rain with isolated higher
  amounts was seen. Storms will tend to form and move over the
  same areas. This, combined with a high amount of moisture in the
  atmosphere, and nearly saturated ground from heavy rainfall
  earlier this week, will create a situation in which flash
  flooding and river flooding are likely.

* Total rainfall amounts through Sunday evening are expected to
  range from 2 to 4 inches, with localized higher amounts
  possible.

* 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.
