WEATHER SUMMARY FOR ARKANSAS  
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE LITTLE ROCK AR  
425 PM CST FRI FEB 23 2018  
 
ACROSS ARKANSAS ON FRIDAY, MUCH OF THE RAIN MOVED A BIT FARTHER  
NORTH, AND SETTLED OVER NORTHERN ARKANSAS. THE AMOUNTS DID COME DOWN  
ALSO, WITH MOSTLY LIGHT TO AT TIMES MODERATE RAIN SEEN ACROSS THE  
AREA. 24 HOUR RAIN AMOUNTS FROM THURSDAY MORNING TO FRIDAY MORNING  
WERE SEVERAL INCHES, WITH THE LITTLE ROCK AREA SEEING 2 TO 4 INCHES,  
WITH ISOLATED HIGHER AMOUNTS IN SPOTS. AREAS OF FLOODING WERE NOTED  
OVER MUCH OF SOUTHWEST, TO CENTRAL TO NORTHEAST ARKANSAS, WITH OTHER  
AREAS SEEING FLOODING A MAJOR CONCERN. ON THE WEATHER MAP, A  
SOUTHWEST UPPER PATTERN REMAINED OVER THE REGION, AND UPPER LEVEL  
WEATHER SYSTEMS WILL CONTINUE TO MOVE OVER ARKANSAS AND BRING  
ADDITIONAL RAIN. AFTER MORNING LOWS MAINLY IN THE 40S TO SOME 50S,  
HIGHS ON FRIDAY REACHED THE 50S OVER THE NORTH AND CENTRAL, WHILE  
SOME 60S OVER THE SOUTH.  
 
FRIDAY NIGHT, THE CHANCE OF RAIN WILL STAY IN THE FORECAST, WHILE  
LIGHTER RAIN AMOUNTS WILL BE SEEN. ALTHOUGH, ANY AREAS THAT ARE  
FLOODED WILL SEE LITTLE RELIEF DUE TO THE HIGH RAIN AMOUNTS SEEN IN  
THE LAST FEW DAYS. LOWS WILL BE FROM THE 40S NORTH, 50S CENTRAL TO  
SOME 60S IN THE SOUTH.  
 
SATURDAY WILL SEE A STRONG WEATHER SYSTEM MOVE THROUGH THE REGION,  
AND DEVELOP ADDITIONAL SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS, WITH AGAIN SOME  
HEAVY RAIN. ALSO THIS SYSTEM WILL PRODUCE SOME STRONG TO SEVERE  
THUNDERSTORMS ACROSS ARKANSAS, MAINLY DURING THE AFTERNOON AND  
EVENING HOURS AHEAD OF THE COLD FRONT. STRONG WINDS AND ISOLATED  
TORNADOES WILL BE POSSIBLE.  
 
ADDITIONAL RAINFALL WITH THIS SYSTEM WILL BE 1 TO 2 INCHES WITH  
ISOLATED HIGHER AMOUNTS. GIVEN THE ALREADY SATURATED SOILS DUE TO  
RECENT HEAVY RAIN, EXPECT THE POTENTIAL FOR FLASH AND RIVER FLOODING  
TO CONTINUE FOR MANY AREAS. TEMPERATURES WILL TOP OUT IN THE UPPER  
60S TO UPPER 70S ON SATURDAY. BEHIND THE FRONT, HIGH PRESSURE WILL  
BRING MUCH DRY CONDITIONS AND SLIGHTLY COOLER TEMPERATURES TO THE  
STATE BEGINNING SUNDAY.
