Areal Flood Watch
Issued: 4:25 AM CST Feb. 24, 2018 – National Weather Service

... Flood Watch remains in effect through this evening...

The 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,
Faulkner, Garland, Grant, Lonoke, Perry, prairie, Pulaski,
Saline, and white. In eastern Arkansas, Jackson, Monroe, and

Cleveland, Desha, Drew, Jefferson, and Lincoln. In southwest
Arkansas, Calhoun, Clark, Dallas, Hot Spring, Ouachita, and

precipitation expected, and locally over three inches. The
highest totals should be from southwest through central and
northeast sections of the state, or from Mena to Morrilton and

saturated. As a result, the runoff potential has increased,
resulting in a high threat for flash and river flooding through
this evening. There have already been numerous high water
reports, including flooding of roads and Road closures. Any more
heavy rainfall may create additional dangerous flooding
situations.
