...FLOOD WATCH REMAINS IN EFFECT THROUGH SATURDAY EVENING... The Flood Watch continues for * Portions of CENTRAL ARKANSAS, NORTH CENTRAL ARKANSAS, and WESTERN ARKANSAS, including the following areas, in CENTRAL ARKANSAS, Conway, Pope, and Yell. In NORTH CENTRAL ARKANSAS, Baxter, Boone, Fulton, Izard, Marion, Newton, Searcy, Sharp, Stone, and Van Buren. In WESTERN ARKANSAS, Johnson, Logan, and Scott. * Through Saturday evening * Heavy to excessive rain fell across Arkansas the last three days, with 3 to 6 inch amounts common and locally over eight inches. Rain and isolated thunderstorms were ongoing this morning from Texarkana to Little Rock and Jonesboro. Precipitation will shift into mainly the northwest half of the state tonight. Another round of thunderstorms will hit the region on Saturday. The forecast calls from an additional 1 to 3 inches of rain, with locally over 4 inches across the north and west. * Given the recent heavy rainfall, the ground has become saturated in much of the region. The runoff potential has increased, making flash flooding and river flooding more likely. There have already been numerous high water reports, including flooding of roads and road closures. If expected rainfall amounts are realized, this could become a dangerous situation, with water possibly getting into homes and businesses in places.
