Hazardous Weather Outlook For DREW County,AR
433 AM CST Sun Feb 18 2018 DAY ONE Today and Tonight Dense fog is likely this morning across portions of central and southern Arkansas with freezing fog possible in northern Arkansas. This may lead to hazardous travel, either from reduced visibility or isolated icy patches on bridges and overpasses where freezing fog occurs. Winds could be gusty later this morning into tonight, so caution should be exercised on area waterways. DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN Monday Through Saturday A slow moving cold front will interact with deep gulf moisture to produce widespread moderate to heavy rainfall across the area through the middle of the week. At this time, it looks like the heaviest rain will fall Tuesday and Wednesday. The potential exists for as much as four to six inches of rain with locally highers amounts. This amount of rain could lead to some flooding or flash flooding concerns depending upon where the exact placement of the heaviest rain occurs. If the heaviest rain falls over the north and west which has been abnormally dry of late, the impacts will not be as significant. However, if the heaviest rain falls over the south and east which has been wet of late, flooding concerns will be higher. Rivers will also likely be impacted by the widespread heavy rain expected. With the exact placement of the heaviest rain still uncertain, it is worth monitoring the latest forecasts in the coming days. Spotter Information Statement Spotter activation will not be needed.
