Stormy Friday Predicted For Arkansas
The National Weather Service says strong to severe thunderstorms are possible Friday throughout parts of Arkansas.
Forecasters have issued a flash flood watch for the western half of Arkansas through Friday night.
Heavy rain and thunderstorms are predicted, along with large hail and damaging winds in some areas.
The weather service says much cooler temperatures are expected over the weekend after the storm system moves out.
Forecasters predict sunny skies with highs in the mid-80s on Saturday and Sunday. Another low-pressure system is expected to approach the state early next week, bringing with it another chance of rainfall.
The weather service says the recent rainfall is alleviating drought conditions in Arkansas. As of Friday, only six Arkansas counties had burn bans in place.
