Weather Summary for Arkansas
National Weather Service Little Rock AR
525 AM CST Sun Feb 25 2018

Rain finally ended overnight, with a large area of showers and
thunderstorms exiting to the east of Arkansas. The sky became clear
to partly cloudy during the predawn hours, with temperatures
dropping into the upper 20s in the northwest to around 50 degrees in
the southeast.

Five day rainfall totals ranged from five to nine inches at most
locations, with amounts over ten inches from southwest into central
Arkansas. This much rain cause widespread flash flooding and river
flooding.

On Saturday, severe weather became a headline, with strong to
damaging winds downing trees in places. There were isolated
tornadoes in eastern sections of the state, and a fatility near
Knobel in Clay County when a trailer was blown into a pond.

On the early morning weather map, high pressure was beginning to
build into the region from the Plains, and this will provide dry
weather over much of the area Monday and much of Tuesday. There
could be some lingering showers in the southeast counties today into
this evening.

High temperatures today will be in the 50s to lower 60s. Lows
tonight will be in the lower 30s to mid 40s. Highs on Monday will be
in the 60s.

Toward the middle of the week, a new storm system will arrive from
the southwest United States. The system will track through the
central Plains and mid-Mississippi Valley on Wednesday, and will
drag a cold front into Arkansas. This will trigger numerous showers
and thunderstorms.

Some storms could be severe on Wednesday across the central and
southern counties. In the same part of the state, one to more than
three inches of rain could occur through early Thursday. If this
much rain materializes, it will aggravate an already serious high
water situation.
