...FLASH FLOOD WATCH REMAINS IN EFFECT FROM FRIDAY EVENING
THROUGH SUNDAY EVENING...

The Flash 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,
Conway, Faulkner, Garland, Grant, Lonoke, Perry, Pope,
Prairie, Pulaski, Saline, White, and Yell. In EASTERN
ARKANSAS, Jackson, Monroe, and Woodruff. In NORTH CENTRAL
ARKANSAS, Baxter, Boone, Cleburne, Fulton, Independence,
Izard, Marion, Newton, Searcy, Sharp, Stone, and Van Buren. In
SOUTHEAST ARKANSAS, Arkansas and Jefferson. In SOUTHWEST
ARKANSAS, Clark, Dallas, Hot Spring, and Pike. In WESTERN
ARKANSAS, Johnson, Logan, Montgomery, Polk, and Scott.

* From Friday evening through Sunday evening

* Several periods of rain, heavy at times, will create areas of
flash and river flooding across much of Arkansas. On
Wednesday, one to three inches of rain, with some locations
receiving higher amounts, fell across Arkansas. Friday night
and over the weekend, additional weather systems will bring
rain, heavy at times to Arkansas. An additional two to four
inches of rain, with locally higher amounts, will be possible.
A few localized areas, especially in northwest and northern
Arkansas, may see rainfall amounts in excess of seven inches.
This amount of rain will create flash flooding conditions, as
well as rises on rivers that will be significant.

* Evacuations of flood and flash flood prone areas may be
needed, and those interests along Arkansas rivers will need to
monitor this developing hazardous weather situation.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

If you are in the watch area, keep informed, and be ready for
quick action if flash flooding is observed or if a warning is
issued. Persons living in low lying areas along main-stem rivers
should monitor the latest forecast and be ready to evacuate to
higher ground.

Do not drive your vehicle into areas where water covers the road
to unknown depths. Take a different route to reach your
destination or wait until the water recedes. Remember, most flood
related deaths occur in automobiles and flooding is the leading
cause of weather related deaths.

A Flash Flood Watch means that conditions may develop that lead
to flash flooding. Flash flooding is a very dangerous situation.
You should monitor later forecasts and be prepared to take action
should Flash Flood Warnings be issued.
