According to the National Weather Service, we’re looking for a lot of rain until this evening. See the statement below:
Rain will continue Monday and Monday night, with thunderstorms possible. Rain will be heavy at times, especially from central into northeast Arkansas. Two to four inches of additional rain is in the forecast. Given this much rain, localized flash flooding is possible. Minor river flooding is expected to continue, especially along the Black, Lower White, and Cache River basins. Moderate flooding could occur along portions of these tributaries.
Winds will increase tonight as a cold front moves into the state. Winds of 15 to 25 MPH with higher gusts will occur, and this could cause rough conditions on area bodies of water.
Winds will diminish on Tuesday afternoon and evening as the front clears the state. Rain will taper off, with dry weather to follow on Wednesday. Showers will redevelop Thursday and Thursday night, but any impacts should be minor. Colder air will follow late in the week and into the weekend.
As colder air settles over the region, another round of precipitation is expected to arrive Sunday night. Given subfreezing temperatures in the forecast over northern into central Arkansas, some snow or ice could develop.
