* Flash Flood Watch for portions of southwest Arkansas...
northwest Louisiana... southeast Oklahoma and Texas... including
the following areas... in southwest Arkansas... Columbia...

night. Locally heavy rainfall is possible from the stronger
storms... falling over already saturated grounds from heavy
rainfall that has fallen in the last week. Rainfall amounts of
one to three inches... with isolated higher amounts... are
expected... with this heavy rainfall resulting in increased
runoff and the potential for flash flooding.

* Low lying and poor drainage areas... especially in the vicinity
of rapidly rising creeks... will be most prone to flash flooding.

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.
