A slow moving cold front will push into Arkansas this weekend. Rain will develop along and ahead of the front...with heaviest rain expected over the southeast half of the state. Two to four inches will be common across much of the hydrologic service area...with four to six inches possible south and east of the I-30/Hwy 67 corridor.
Given this much rain...flash flooding and river flooding will be a concern. Area rivers and streams in the Ouachita...lower Arkansas...and lower White river basin will be the most threatened during this event...with minor to moderate flooding possible.
Emergency managers...media...and all people living in or visiting the area should pay close attention to updated forecasts for the possiblity of heavy rainfall and flooding. Remember...driving into flooded areas can be fatal.
