...MULTIPLE ROUNDS OF HEAVY RAINFALL THIS WEEKEND WILL LIKELY CAUSE
RIVER FLOODING NEXT WEEK...

MOISTURE LEVELS WILL INCREASE SIGNIFICANTLY OVER THE NEXT FEW DAYS
IN RESPONSE TO A WARM FRONT LIFTING OVER THE AREA FRIDAY. A SLOW
MOVING COLD FRONT WILL SLOWLY MOVE THROUGH THE STATE ON SATURDAY AND

MORNING ARE FORECASTED TO BE ONE TO THREE INCHES OVER SOUTHEAST
ARKANSAS...WITH THREE TO FIVE INCHES OVER A LARGE PORTION OF CENTRAL
ARKANSAS...WITH FIVE TO SEVEN INCHES POSSIBLE OVER THE OZARKS AND
PORTIONS OF NORTH AND NORTHEAST ARKANSAS.

CONSIDERING STREAMFLOW ON THE BUFFALO...SPRING...BLACK AND WHITE

TO MODERATE RIVER FLOODING.

AWARE THAT AREA ROADS MAY BECOME COVERED IN WATER. REMEMBER IF YOU
