Hazardous Weather Outlook For HEMPSTEAD County,AR
624 AM CDT Tue Oct 16 2018 DAY ONE Today and TonightWidespread light to moderate rain showers with pockets of heavier downpours will continue today under the moisture laden Southwest winds aloft overrunning our recent cold front. Brief periods of heavy rainfall will be possible as subtle impulses ramp up the activity from time to time. Rainfall amounts may vary greatly, but widespread one to three inches are expected through late tonight. Some areas may see some training of shower activity which will result in additional minor flooding of low lying and poor drainage areas. DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN Wednesday through Monday Showers will gradually diminish early on Wednesday as drier air works in the backdoor from the Northeast. Although showers may linger over parts of eastern Texas for Wednesday and Thursday, they will begin to increase once again from the west Thursday night and Friday as a series of upper level disturbances move back over the area. This next big round of late week showers will begin to diminish from North to South during Saturday as another cold front drops in over the area, reinforcing cooler and drier air for Sunday. The new week starts out dry as well, but looks wet again soon after. SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT Activation of emergency managers, spotter networks and amateur radio operators will not be needed today or tonight.
