Flash Flood Watch
Issued: 3:58 AM CDT Apr. 29, 2017 – National Weather Service

... Flash Flood Watch remains in effect 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.

* Today through Sunday evening

* much of the northern half of Arkansas has received 1 to 3 inches
of rain Friday night to Saturday morning, and is forecast to
receive anywhere from 2 to 5 inches, with isolated higher
amounts, from Saturday morning and lasting through Sunday
evening. Elsewhere in central parts of the state, 2 to 4 inches
of rain will be possible. Locally heavier amounts will be seen,
and a few spots, especially in north central to northwest
Arkansas, may see rainfall amounts in excess of 4 to 6 inches.
These rainfall amounts will likely create river flooding and
flash flooding across the area.

* 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.
