Rain will continue across most of the state over the next 24
hours. A warm front is just southeast of arkansas and will slowly
move north through the period. Moderate to heavy rain is expected
at times north of the front. Rain will become less likely south
of the front. Rain and fog will continue to be concerns through
the period. Mainly MVFR to ifr conditions are anticipated through
the period.

Prev discussion (issued 545 am cst Fri feb 23 2018)
aviation...

low clouds patchy fog will create MVFR ifr conditions much
of today tonight across arkansas. In the far southeast, there
is a chance that low clouds break up a bit this afternoon evening,
with briefVFR conditions possible.

Rain will be widespread this morning from southwest into central
and northeast sections. Heading into this afternoon tonight,
precipitation is expected to shift into the northwest half of
the state.

Winds through the period will be light variable. (46)
short term... Today through Saturday night
a front remained stalled over extreme southeast arkansas early
this morning. There was a swath of rain scattered thunderstorms
north of the front from texarkana to little rock and jonesboro.

Rain will continue in these areas this morning, and will be
heavy at times.

The front will lift slowly to the north today tonight, with
precipitation shifting more into northern western sections of
the state. At the same time, cool air will be replaced by milder
conditions.

On Saturday, a potent storm system in the plains will drag a new
cold front into the region. Springlike air will be in place
across southern eastern arkansas. Another round of thunderstorms
is likely ahead of the new front. In addition to more heavy rain,
there is a severe weather concern.

Given ample speed directional shear, some storms bowing segments
could produce wind damage, and there could be some isolated
tornadoes.

Through Saturday night, one to more than three inches of
additional rain is in the forecast, with locally more than four
inches in the north west. A flood watch is posted over the
entire county warning area. This situation could become
dangerous life threatening, with water possibly getting into
some homes businesses.

Long term... Sunday through Thursday
arkansas will find itself in the wake of the cold front that moved
through during the tail end of the short term portion of the
forecast. High pressure will build in and dry weather will be seen
across most of the area through Monday.

Rain chances return by Tuesday and look to persist through Thursday
of next week before another front makes its way across the state.

The flow aloft will initially be zonal, with more of a southwesterly
direction observed by early week as a large trough begins to swing
across the western us, which will help to once again increase
moisture across the area.

Cooler (near normal) temperatures are expected in the wake of the
front and through the remainder of the long term portion of the
forecast.

It is not checked for accuracy either by anyone at L-36.com or by the source which is typically the US Government. See the NOAA web site for their disclaimer. Finally, tide and current data on this site is from 2007 and 2008 data bases, which may contain even older data. Changes in harbors due to building or dredging change tides and currents and for that reason many of the locations presented are no longer supported by newer data bases. For example, there is very little tidal current data in newer data bases so current data is likely wrong to some extent. This data is NOT FOR NAVIGATION. See the XTide disclaimer for details. In addition, tide and current are influenced by storms, river flow, and other factors beyond the ability of any predictive program.
