Areal Flood Watch
Issued: 4:22 AM CST Feb. 22, 2018 – National Weather Service

... Flood Watch in effect through Saturday evening...

The National Weather Service in Little Rock has issued a

* Flood Watch 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

* two to locally more than four inches of rain occurred in much of
northern and western Arkansas the last couple of days. Several
more rounds of showers and isolated thunderstorms are in the
forecast through Saturday as a front lifts toward the state from
the Gulf Coast, and a storm system arrives from the plains. One
to three inches of additional precipitation is in the forecast,
with locally higher amounts.

* Given recent heavy rain, there is more soil moisture. The ground
is incapable of holding as much water, so the runoff potential
has increased. This will make flash flooding more likely.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A Flood Watch means there is a potential for flooding based on
current forecasts.

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.
