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

.DAY ONE...This Evening through Tonight

Rainfall, heavy at times, will continue to be seen this afternoon
and through tonight. One to two inches of rain, with isolated higher
amounts, are forecast to occur, mainly along an axis from along the
I-30 and US-67 corridor through tonight. Expect lesser amounts
outside of this axis. As a result, additional flash flooding will
remain possible for most areas given the widespread heavy rainfall
over the last few days, as well as river flooding will also
continue. Flood and flash flood watches remain in affect for all of
Arkansas. Extra caution should be used, especially at night, when
driving into areas that may have flooded.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Friday Through Wednesday

Flooding continues to be the main hazard through the period. Showers
and thunderstorms will persist across much of the area on Friday,
with flooding and flash flooding remaining a major concern,
especially along and near the I-30 and US-67 corridor. An additional
one to two inches of rain is possible Friday and Friday night.

Another round of showers and thunderstorms is expected on Saturday
into Saturday night, with more heavy rainfall possible keeping the
flooding threat high. In addition to the flooding concerns, there is
a chance for some strong to severe thunderstorms Saturday afternoon
and evening across all but the northwest portion of the area. The
primary threat with the strongest storms will be damaging winds, and
a few tornadoes, with an enhanced flash flood threat as a result of
additional locally heavy rainfall.

.Spotter Information Statement...

Significant reports of flooding will be appreciated, though the
severe weather threat will remain low through Friday night. However,
spotter activation may be need on Saturday afternoon and evening.
