Much Of Arkansas At Risk For Heavy Rainfall Next Week

Mar 4, 2016

The National Weather Service says very heavy rainfall is likely for parts of Arkansas next week.

The weather service says the forecast is still tentative, but some areas could see 6 inches of rain or more. Forecasters are still trying to determine where the heaviest rainfall will occur when a storm system stalls out over the state.

Forecasters say the heavy rain is expected Tuesday through Friday of next week. As of now, central, northeast and southwest Arkansas are at the greatest risk of heavy rain, but the weather service says the forecast is still uncertain.
