Expect wet conditions across Arkansas in the coming days as a very slow moving cold front interacts with a lot of moisture. Through February 25th, the forecast calls for several inches of rain across much of the region, with over a half foot of liquid in places. If this much rain occurs, flash flooding and river flooding will become a concern.
The first round of very heavy rain is scheduled to arrive over northern and western Arkansas Tuesday into early Wednesday. There is a moderate risk of flash flooding across the north and west during this time frame. Check with your National Weather Service for the latest updates.
In the coming days, cold air (below average temperatures) over northern and western sections of the country will collide with very mild air (above average temperatures) over the southeast. Fronts between the air masses will be surrounded by lots of moisture, especially from eastern Texas into Arkansas and the Ohio and Tennessee Valleys. Several inches of rain will be possible locally.
