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,

* From 7 PM CDT this evening through Sunday evening

* much of the northern half of Arkansas is forecast to receive
anywhere from 3 to 6 inches of rain beginning tonight and
lasting through Sunday morning. Elsewhere in central parts of
the state, two to four 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 five to seven inches. With this types of rainfall
amounts, river flooding and flash flooding will be likely.

* 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.
