Southwest Arkansas: Hempstead, Howard, Little River, Nevada and Sevier.

Through Wednesday evening Rainfall totals of 2 to 4 inches, with isolated higher amounts possible through Wednesday evening. The Watch area remains saturated from the heavy rainfall that has fallen over the last week. This additional heavy rainfall late tonight through Wednesday evening will likely result in flash flooding.
Flooding may occur in urban and poor drainage areas. Heavy rainfall may also cause flooding of creeks, streams, and rivers. A Flash Flood Watch means that conditions may develop that lead to Flash Flooding. Flash Flooding is a very dangerous situation. You should monitor later forecasts and be prepared to take action should Flash Flood Warnings be issued.
