This Hazardous Weather Outlook is for a Large Part of Arkansas.

.DAY ONE...Rest of Today and Tonight

Flood and flash flood watches remain in effect for much of Arkansas.
Areas of rain, heavy at times, and isolated thunderstorms will
continue to affect much of central and southern Arkansas, while
lowering over northern Arkansas. River levels are coming up and
areas of flooding have been reported. Tonight, most of the rain will
be seen over southern and the eastern half of Arkansas.
Precipitation will tend to taper off or become more spotty in the
northwest, also where temperatures will be around freezing some
spotty winter precipitation will be possible. No accumulations are

In much of the south and east, rain will continue tonight, and be
heavy at times. The threat for flooding will continue. Two to five
plus inches of rain have fallen over much of Arkansas, and one to
two more inches of rain may be seen tonight through Thursday

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Thursday Through Tuesday

Some rainfall will linger through the morning hours Thursday, mainly
across southeastern portions of the area. Any rain that falls would
likely only worsen expected flooding conditions.

Additional heavy rainfall will return to the forecast by late
Thursday through Sunday morning as the aforementioned front moves
back to the north over the region. Rainfall totals across the state
from Thursday through Sunday morning will likely be in the two to
four inch range for many areas. As a result, the threat for
widespread river and flash flooding will continue to increase
throughout the week and into the weekend.

Severe weather may be possible on Saturday as an upper level storm
system approaches from the west. Even with well above normal
temperatures expected and abundant moisture in place, certain
atmospheric conditions appear to limit the severe weather threat. Be
sure to monitor the latest forecast and outlooks for more
information regarding this severe weather chance.

.Spotter Information Statement...

Flooding will continue to be a concern across Arkansas, and any
significant reports are requested. Otherwise, due to a low severe
weather concern, spotter activation is not anticipated through
Friday. If there are severe storms, they appear most likely this
weekend, and spotter activation may be required.
