The National Weather Service in Little Rock has issued a

* Flash Flood Watch for portions of CENTRAL ARKANSAS, NORTH
  following areas, in CENTRAL ARKANSAS, Conway, Faulkner,
  Garland, Lonoke, Perry, Pope, Pulaski, Saline, White, and
  Yell. In NORTH CENTRAL ARKANSAS, Baxter, Boone, Cleburne,
  Fulton, Independence, Izard, Marion, Newton, Searcy, Sharp,
  Stone, and Van Buren. In WESTERN ARKANSAS, Johnson, Logan,
  Montgomery, Polk, and Scott.

* From Friday evening through Sunday morning

* Heavy rainfall is expected to develop from northwest to central
  Arkansas Friday night through Sunday morning. Storm total
  rainfall amounts are expected to climb into the 4 to 6 inch
  range which will allow for flash flooding across parts of
  northern and central Arkansas.

* Low-lying and urban areas will be the first to flood. If you
  have plans to camp across Arkansas this weekend, do not camp in
  low-lying areas or near dry creek beds, and make sure you have a
  way to receive weather warnings. Flash flooding will be likely
  in the terrain of the Ouachita and Ozark Mountain areas.


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.
