... 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...

Benton... Carroll... Crawford... Madison and Washington. In west
central Arkansas... Franklin and Sebastian.

* From Sunday afternoon through Monday morning

night.

* Rainfall amounts of 2 to 4 inches will be common through Monday

The heaviest rainfall across west central and northwest Arkansas is
expected Sunday and Sunday night... which will likely lead to
flash flooding given the saturated soils. Anyone who has outdoor
activities or travel planned over the coming 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.
