Weather Summary for Arkansas
National Weather Service Little Rock AR
418 PM CST Sat Feb 24 2018

Heavy rain has fallen across the majority of the state over the
past few days with many areas seeing in excess of eight inches.
Areas of flooding were noted over much of southwest, to central
to northeast Arkansas, with other areas seeing flooding a major
concern.

Rain developed across central and northern sections early in the
day as a warm front lifted through the state. After starting the
day in the 50s, temperatures have warmed into the 60s across the
north and 70s over the south.

On the weather map, an area of low pressure will be moving through
the region dragging a cold front as it does. A line of strong to
severe thunderstorms will accompany this front as it races move
through the region. An isolated tornado can not be discounted.

Additional rainfall with this system will be 1 to 2 inches with
isolated higher amounts. Given the already saturated soils due to
recent heavy rain, expect the potential for flash and river flooding
to continue for many areas. Temperatures will top out in the upper
60s to upper 70s on Saturday. Behind the front, high pressure will
bring much dry conditions and slightly cooler temperatures to the
state beginning Sunday.
