Flash Flood Watch

Statement as of 10:11 AM CDT on May 30, 2015

Expires 8:00 PM EDT on May 30, 2015


... Flash Flood Watch remains in effect until 7 PM CDT this
evening...

The Flash Flood Watch continues for

* portions of southwest Arkansas... northwest Louisiana...

* Until 7 PM CDT this evening

* showers and thunderstorms will continue to develop and spread
over the area today with the passage of an upper level trough
of low pressure and along and near a cold front that will be
slow to move south and east across the area. Locally heavy
rainfall amounts of one to three inches are expected... with
isolated higher amounts. The soil remains saturated and this
new rainfall will quickly runoff into our already swollen
local and area wide drainage systems.

of rapidly rising bayous... creeks and streams... will be most
prone to flash flooding during heavy rainfall.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A Flash Flood Watch means that conditions may develop that lead
