AFTERNOON...

* WHAT...Flooding caused by excessive rainfall is possible.

* WHERE...Portions of Arkansas, Louisiana and Texas, including the
  following counties and parishes, in Arkansas, Columbia, Hempstead,
  Lafayette, Little River, Miller, Nevada and Union. In Louisiana,
  Bienville, Bossier, Caddo, Caldwell, Claiborne, De Soto, Grant,

  and Wood.

* WHEN...From Tuesday morning through Thursday afternoon.

* IMPACTS...Excessive runoff may result in flooding of rivers,
  creeks, streams, and other low-lying and flood-prone locations.
  Creeks and streams may rise out of their banks. Low-water
  crossings may be flooded.

* ADDITIONAL DETAILS...
  - Areas of rain will develop and begin to spread east across
    the region by mid to late morning Tuesday, and persist
    through much of the day Thursday before diminishing from west
    to east. Some of this rain may changeover to freezing rain at
    times across the western sections of East Texas into portions
    of Southwest Arkansas. Grounds remain very saturated in wake
    of extensive heavy rains that have fallen over the last week,
    with many creeks, bayous, and lakes rising to near or in
    excess of flood stage. Additional rainfall amounts of one to
    three inches, with isolated higher amounts, are expected
    through Thursday afternoon. This additional rainfall will
    quickly run off and generate new rises on area waterways, and
    possibly result in additional flooding.
