Storms Forecast for Tonight in Region 8; Rivers Already Swollen by Days of Rain

JANUARY 12, 2005 - Posted at 7:52 a.m. CST

 

JONESBORO, AR - The National Weather Service says severe storms are possible today and tonight as a squall line moves across Arkansas.

A surface low is developing over the area, and the storms are forecast to move ahead of a cold front that is moving from the northwest.  The weather service says large hail, heavy rains and isolated tornadoes are possible.

The weather service says western Arkansas will see numerous storms this afternoon, and the bad weather will move eastward.

The weather service advises Arkansans to stay informed of conditions, to remember safety rules, and to take any necessary precautions.

In northeast Arkansas, the Cache and Black rivers are already starting to spill out of their banks at some locations in Craighead and Randolph counties.

After the cold front pushes through, lows are to dip below freezing across the state by tomorrow night.
