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

.DAY ONE...Through Tonight

Scattered to numerous showers with a few thunderstorms will
continue to be possible through tonight, especially over central
and northeast portions of the state. Additional rainfall amounts
of one to two inches are possible, with locally heavier totals.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Tuesday Through Sunday

Rain chances will continue on Tuesday but increase in coverage and
magnitude statewide Tuesday through Wednesday night, when locally
heavy rain could fall. At this time, the highest concern for
heavy rainfall will be from central into western Arkansas, where
heavy rains fell this morning. Additional rainfall will only add
to already saturated ground, with flash flooding possible. Through
Wednesday evening, additional rainfall amounts in excess of three
inches are possible, especially over western portions of the

Precipitation chances will continue through the remainder of the
period but the rainfall will be more scattered in nature.

This will be a multi-day rain event and help contribute to elevated
stream/river levels. The highest potential for flash flooding
appears to be in the Tuesday night through Wednesday evening time
frame when the heaviest of the rain is expected.
