Flash Flood Watch
Statement as of 4:28 AM CDT on May 23, 2015

... Flash Flood Watch remains in effect from Sunday afternoon
through Monday morning...

The Flash Flood Watch continues for

* portions of northwest Arkansas and west central Arkansas...
including the following areas... in northwest Arkansas...
Benton... Carroll... Crawford... Madison and Washington. In west
central Arkansas... Franklin and Sebastian.

* From Sunday afternoon through Monday morning

* several rounds of showers and thunderstorms are expected
during the watch period. Scattered showers and thunderstorms
today will become more numerous over the weekend. Heavy...
possibly flooding rain... is expected Sunday and Sunday night.

* Rainfall amounts of 1.5 to 3 inches will be common through
Monday morning... with locally higher amounts approaching 5
inches possible. The heaviest rainfall across west central and
northwest Arkansas is expected Sunday and Sunday night... which
may lead to flash flooding given the saturated soils.

Anyone who has outdoor activities or travel planned this
weekend should closely monitor conditions for possible
closures of roads and recreational areas... and plan
accordingly.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A Flash Flood Watch means rapidly rising water or flooding is
possible within the watch area.

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.

If you live near... or travel across a stream... creek or river
subject to flooding... now is the time to prepare for dangerous
flooding.
