WEATHER SUMMARY FOR ARKANSAS
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE LITTLE ROCK AR
525 AM CDT SUN MAY 24 2015

CLOUDS INCREASED ACROSS THE STATE OVERNIGHT AS A STORM SYSTEM THAT
BROUGHT HEAVY RAIN AND SEVERE STORMS TO OKLAHOMA SLOWLY PUSHED EAST
TOWARDS ARKANSAS. DURING THE EARLY MORNING HOURS...SHOWERS AND A FEW
THUNDERSTORMS DEVELOPED ACROSS THE WESTERN THIRD OF THE STATE.
PREDAWN TEMPERATURES RANGED FROM THE UPPER 60S TO LOWER 70S.

SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS WILL CONTINUE TO PUSH TO THE EAST AND
THROUGH THE STATE TODAY. HEAVY RAIN CAN BE EXPECTED WITH TWO TO FOUR
INCHES OF RAIN POSSIBLE. WITH THE GROUND ALREADY SATURATED IT IS
VERY LIKELY FLASH FLOODING WILL OCCUR. IN ADDITION TO THE FLASH
FLOODING THREAT...THERE WILL ALSO BE THE POSSIBILITY OF SEVERE
WEATHER TODAY WITH THE MAIN THREAT BEING DAMAGING WINDS...AND TO A
LESSER EXTENT ISOLATED TORNADOES WILL BE POSSIBLE. WINDS WILL BE
STRONG OUT OF THE SOUTHEAST TODAY...AS A RESULT A LAKE WIND ADVISORY
HAS BEEN ISSUED.

A LULL IN THE PRECIPITATION WILL BE SEEN DURING THE DAY ON MONDAY
BEFORE A SECOND ROUND OF HEAVY RAIN WILL BE SEEN MONDAY NIGHT INTO
TUESDAY. AN ADDITIONAL 2 TO 4 INCHES OF RAIN WILL ONCE AGAIN BE
POSSIBLE ACROSS THE STATE.

THE FLASH FLOOD WATCH HAS BEEN EXTENDED TO THE ENTIRE STATE...AND
NOW CONTINUES THROUGH MID DAY ON TUESDAY. THE GROUND IS ALREADY
SATURATED AND CANNOT HOLD MUCH ADDITIONAL WATER. RIVERS ARE RUNNING
HIGH. AN IMPENDING HEAVY RAIN EVENT IS A RECIPE FOR LIFE THREATENING
FLOODING. IF EXPECTED RAINFALL COMES TO FRUITION...ROADS WILL GO
UNDER WATER...CREEKS AND STREAMS WILL OVERFLOW AND HIGH WATER COULD
AFFECT HOMES AND BUSINESSES. THIS IS A POTENTIALLY SERIOUS SITUATION.
