Small rain chances will be in the forecast late Tuesday night into Wednesday but only minor accumulations are expected.

Another, chance for rain will arrive around the 21st of December followed by yet another system around Christmas Day.

For Fort Smith to break the all-time record we’d need 5.55″ more rain.
