.NOW...
At 4:33 PM...Doppler radars detected an area of continued
weakening rain showers across parts of northwest Arkansas. The
activity was primarily confined to Carroll and Madison counties.
These showers continue to move off to the south at around 25 mph,
in the wake of a departing low pressure system.

Through 6:45 PM...occasional light rain showers or sprinkles will
remain possible for locations across northwest Arkansas, mainly
along and east of a Bentonville to Fort Chaffee line. Additional
rainfall from a trace to a couple hundredths of an inch are
possible during this time. The showers are expected to move out of
the area by 6:45 pm, therefore this will be the final short term
forecast issued for this event.
