Potential for Severe Storms Saturday, Flooding Threat Continues

The biggest concern with today isn't necessarily the severe weather but the flood potential associated with it. Flood and flash flood watches remain in effect for all of Arkansas.

Our last round of rain is incoming and will move in by 8-10AM.

Light showers will wrap up around midday, but don't expect a break from the clouds.

Kentucky Governor Matt Bevin responded to "continued heavy rainfall events which have caused widespread flooding and damage to critical infrastructure across Kentucky" by declaring a statewide state of emergency on Friday. No severe weather is expected with this first round this morning. Isolated heavy downpours are possible this afternoon as temperatures warm to the upper 50s.

Some storms may be strong to severe along and south of the warm front, which is expected to stay well south of St. Louis, impacting our far southern counties. Areas south of I-70 are in a Slight Risk. A quick spin up of a tornado can not be ruled out.


Weather service forecasters say more rain is expected through Saturday, ranging from less than an inch in northern IL to 3 to 4 inches in far southern IL.

More rain is coming Saturday night, perhaps up to an inch.

At 7:34 a.m., radar indicated an area of heavy rain over the advisory area. "We've been pretty moist for this time of year".

High water spurred authorities in Flint, Mich., to shut roadways Tuesday after vehicles got stuck, in one case with floodwaters reaching the doors of a midsize auto, reports MLive.

Dry pattern continues briefly to kick off the work week.
