Storm chances linger in Ark. as Isaac moves away

Posted:

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - Much of Isaac's remnants have tracked out of Arkansas, but showers and thunderstorms will still be possible this weekend.

National Weather Service senior forecaster Brian Smith says the outer bands of Isaac were still affecting central and northeast Arkansas Friday night, and thunderstorms could affect the northern half of the state on Saturday.

The main impact of Isaac on Arkansas has been the rain. The weather service reported preliminary rainfall amounts ranging from 3.26 inches in Alum Fork to 6.1 inches in Fordyce.

Pine Bluff had at least 5.9 inches of rain, which caused flash flooding problems on Friday. Smith says the precipitation brought Pine Bluff's rainfall total to more than 10.5 inches for August and making it a wet month for the city.
