Cold Air Moving in Behind Precipitation

JANUARY 15, 2007 - Posted at 4:02 p.m. CST

 

LITTLE ROCK, AR - As the rain moves out of Arkansas, cold air is moving in.

In Fayetteville, where the rain moved out this morning, the temperature has already dipped to 22 degrees.  Tonight, the low in Fayetteville is forecast to be 11 degrees.

In southeast Arkansas, rain is still falling in Monticello and other areas.  The afternoon temperature in Monticello was 41 degrees and the low tonight is forecast to be around 30.

Freezing temperatures are forecast tonight across the state.

Though the rain is moving out, the National Weather Service cautions that river flooding is still a problem in the state.  The Ouachita River in south Arkansas is expected to crest at 10 feet above flood stage in some places.

The rains have led to flooding agricultural lands along the White, Cache and Black rivers in northeast Arkansas and on the Saline River near Benton.
