800 PM CDT TUE MAR 18 2008

THIS HAZARDOUS WEATHER OUTLOOK IS FOR A LARGE PART OF ARKANSAS.

.DAY ONE...TONIGHT

A DEEP UPPER LEVEL LOW...LOCATED OVER NORTHERN MEXICO WILL MOVE
NORTHEAST OVERNIGHT. DEEP SOUTHERLY FLOW WILL CONTINUE IN ADVANCE OF
THIS SYSTEM TO BRING ABUNDANT GULF MOISTURE INTO THE STATE. DUE TO
THE SLOW MOVING NATURE OF THIS SYSTEM...RAINFALL WILL BE HEAVY. A
FLASH FLOOD WATCH IS IN EFFECT AREA WIDE THROUGH WEDNESDAY MORNING.

SURFACE LOW PRESSURE PASSING TO THE NORTH OF THE AREA WILL DRAG A
SLOW MOVING COLD FRONT THROUGH THE STATE TODAY. THE FRONT WILL ACT
AS A FOCUSING MECHANISM FOR THE HEAVY RAIN. A SECONDARY AREA OF LOW
PRESSURE IS EXPECTED TO FORM ON THE FRONT TONIGHT TO INCREASE THE
RAINFALL POTENTIAL EVEN MORE. THIS LOW WILL MOVE ACROSS SOUTHERN
ARKANSAS TONIGHT AND BE LOCATED OVER THE TENNESSEE VALLEY BY
WEDNESDAY MORNING.

AS THE FRONT MOVES THROUGH THE STATE...SEVERE THUNDERSTORMS WILL BE
POSSIBLE WITH THE MAIN CONCERN BEING DAMAGING WINDS. AN ISOLATED
TORNADO CAN NOT BE RULED OUT. THE BEST CHANCES OF SEEING SEVERE
WEATHER WILL BE ALONG THE FRONT ITSELF AND BEFORE MIDNIGHT. THERE IS
A MODERATE RISK OF SEVERE WEATHER OVER FAR SOUTHERN ARKANSAS WITH
THE REMAINDER OF THE AREA UNDER A SLIGHT RISK.

THE GREATEST CONCERN HOWEVER WILL BE FLOODING. UPWARDS OF FOUR TO
NINE INCHES OF RAIN WILL BE POSSIBLE BY THE TIME THIS WEATHER SYSTEM
EXITS THE REGION. RIVER FLOODING IS ALSO A CONCERN...AS THE GROUND
REMAINS SATURATED AND THE WATER RUNS OFF.

EVERYONE IS URGED TO KEEP INFORMED OF THE LATEST WEATHER CONDITIONS
AND FORECASTS. IN PARTICULAR... PERSONS SHOULD REVIEW SAFETY RULES
FOR FLASH FLOODS.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...WEDNESDAY THROUGH MONDAY

THE SURFACE LOW AND ASSOCIATED COLD FRONT WILL BE LOCATED WELL EAST
OF THE REGION EARLY WEDNESDAY. HOWEVER...THE UPPER LEVEL PART OF THE
STORM WILL BE LOCATED OVER WESTERN ARKNASAS WITH SHOWERS AND
THUNDERSTORMS CONTINUING. THE UPPER LEVEL LOW AND ASSOCIATED TROF
WILL MOVE OFF TO THE NORTHEAST WEDNESDAY AND BE LOCATED OVER THE
OHIO VALLEY BY THE END OF THE DAY. SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS WILL
END FROM WEST TO EAST DURING THE DAY AS THE STORM MOVES OUT.
LOCALIZED HEAVY RAIN WILL STILL BE POSSIBLE OVER THE NORTHEAST PART
OF THE AREA WITH CONSIDERABLY LESSER AMOUNTS OVER THE WEST.

THE REMAINDER OF THE PERIOD WILL BE DRY WITH THE EXCEPTION OF
SATURDAY AND SUNDAY WHEN A WEAK DISTURBANCE WILL BRING A CHANCE OF
SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS TO THE NATURAL STATE.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...

SPOTTER ACTIVATION MAY BE REQUIRED THROUGH TUESDAY NIGHT.

THE FLASH FLOOD WATCH CONTINUES FOR

* PORTIONS OF CENTRAL ARKANSAS...EASTERN ARKANSAS...NORTH
  CENTRAL ARKANSAS...SOUTHEAST ARKANSAS...SOUTHWEST ARKANSAS AND
  WESTERN ARKANSAS...INCLUDING THE FOLLOWING AREAS...IN CENTRAL
  ARKANSAS...CONWAY...FAULKNER...GARLAND...GRANT...LONOKE...

  SOUTHWEST ARKANSAS...CALHOUN...CLARK...DALLAS...HOT SPRING...
  OUACHITA AND PIKE. IN WESTERN ARKANSAS...JOHNSON...LOGAN...
  MONTGOMERY...POLK AND SCOTT.

* THROUGH WEDNESDAY MORNING.

* A STRONG UPPER LEVEL SYSTEM OVER WEST TEXAS WILL CONTINUE MOVING
  NORTHEAST...SENDING ABUNDANT PACIFIC MOISTURE INTO THE REGION.
  AT THE SAME TIME...A SURFACE LOW OVER CENTRAL TEXAS WILL MOVE
  TOWARD ARKANSAS...WITH SOUTHERLY WIND FLOW SENDING ABUNDANT GULF
  MOISTURE INTO THE MID SOUTH. THE LOW PRESSURE WILL DRAG A COLD
  FRONT SLOWLY ACROSS THE REGION THROUGH TONIGHT. SEVERAL IMPULSES
  WILL MOVE UP...AND INTERACT WITH THE FRONT. THIS INTERACTION...
  WHEN COMBINED WITH ABUNDANT MOISTURE AT THE SURFACE AND ALOFT...WILL
  ALLOW FOR PERIODS OF SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS OVER MUCH OF
  ARKANSAS WHICH WILL LAST THROUGH WEDNESDAY MORNING. WITH THE
  SLOW MOVEMENT OF THE FRONT...STORMS ARE LIKELY TO FORM AND MOVE
  OVER THE SAME AREAS. THE SLOW MOVEMENT OF THE SYSTEM...AND AN
  ALREADY SATURATED GROUND WILL ALLOW FOR HEAVY RAINFALL OVER MUCH
  OF THE REGION.

* IN AREAS NORTH OF A LINE FROM MENA...TO LITTLE ROCK...TO
  NEWPORT...AS MUCH AS THREE TO FIVE INCHES OF RAINFALL ARE
  POSSIBLE...WITH HIGHER TOTALS APPROACHING SIX INCHES...IN
  ADDITION TO THE RAINFALL THAT HAS ALREADY OCCURRED. IN AREAS
  SOUTH OF THIS LINE...TWO TO FOUR INCHES OF RAIN ARE POSSIBLE...
  WITH ISOLATED HEAVIER AMOUNTS. THE HEAVY RAINFALL WILL CAUSE
  FLOODING OF LOW LYING AND POOR DRAINAGE AREAS...ESPECIALLY
  UNDERPASSES. LOW WATER CROSSINGS WILL BE EXTREMELY SUSCEPTIBLE
  TO FLOODING. LOCAL RIVERS AND STREAMS COULD APPROACH AND EVEN
  EXCEED FLOOD STAGE.

THIS IS A VERY SERIOUS SITUATION. FLOODING HAS ALREADY OCCURRED IN
PORTIONS OF NORTHERN ARKANSAS AND IS LIKELY ELSEWHERE. IF DRIVING
AFTER DARK...BE EXTREMELY CAUTIOUS...AS IT IS DIFFICULT TO
RECOGNIZE THE DANGERS OF FLASH FLOODING AT NIGHT. PEOPLE SHOULD
MONITOR THE LATEST FORECASTS AND STATEMENTS FROM THE NATIONAL
WEATHER SERVICE. BE PREPARED TO TAKE ACTION IF A WARNING SHOULD BE
ISSUED FOR YOUR AREA...YOUR LIFE MAY DEPEND ON IT.
