Heavy Rain Expected In Arkansas; Should Be Gone In Time For Trick-or-Treating

Flash flooding is expected in much of Arkansas as forecasters predict heavy rain and thunderstorms tonight and tomorrow.

But meteorologist Tabitha Clark with the National Weather Service predicts the rain will let up in time for trick-or-treating in the late afternoon and evening on Thursday.

"As we get late into the afternoon, things are really going to start to taper off when the cold front gets here and pushes everything out. Although it might not be raining when kids go trick-or-treating, it's going to be really wet out," says Clark. 

Clark says about 2 to 3 inches of rain are possible in most areas of the state. Heavier rain is likely in the Ouachita region and southwestern portion of the state, with up to 6 inches expected there.
