FLASH FLOOD THREAT
A flash flood watch is in effect for all of Northwest Arkansas, the central River Valley, and eastern Oklahoma until 4PM.
Overall, the heaviest rain will fall along the Arkansas-Oklahoma state line from the Arkansas River north towards Siloam Springs.
Yesterday's cold front has stalled out and becomes a breeding ground for showers and storms to form, as if a storm highway. Several rounds of rain are expected to move from Oklahoma into Arkansas throughout the morning and early afternoon.
This front will eventually lift north and reduce rain chances a bit later this week.
