Areal Flood Watch
Issued: 4:25 AM CST Feb. 24, 2018 – National Weather Service

... Flood Watch remains in effect through this evening...

The Flood Watch continues for

* portions of central Arkansas, eastern Arkansas, north central
Arkansas, southeast Arkansas, southwest Arkansas, and western
Arkansas, including the following areas, in central Arkansas,
Faulkner, Garland, Grant, Lonoke, Perry, prairie, Pulaski,
Saline, and white. In eastern Arkansas, Jackson, Monroe, and
Woodruff. In north central Arkansas, Cleburne and
Independence. In southeast Arkansas, Arkansas, Bradley,
Cleveland, Desha, Drew, Jefferson, and Lincoln. In southwest
Arkansas, Calhoun, Clark, Dallas, Hot Spring, Ouachita, and
Pike. In western Arkansas, Montgomery and Polk.

* Through this evening

* heavy rain fell across much of Arkansas the last several days, with
4 to locally more than 8 inches observed. Additional heavy rain
will be possible today into this evening, with 1 to 2 inches of
precipitation expected, and locally over three inches. The
highest totals should be from southwest through central and
northeast sections of the state, or from Mena to Morrilton and
Batesville.

* Given the recent heavy rainfall, the ground has become
saturated. As a result, the runoff potential has increased,
resulting in a high threat for flash and river flooding through
this evening. There have already been numerous high water
reports, including flooding of roads and Road closures. Any more
heavy rainfall may create additional dangerous flooding
situations.

.Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A Flood Watch means there is a potential for for high water
problems based on the current forecast of heavy rain.

You should monitor later forecasts and be alert for possible
flood warnings. Those living in areas prone to flooding should be
prepared to take action should flooding develop.
