Isaac continues to cross over Arkansas this morning producing heavy rains across parts of the State. Some spots have received well over 3 inches as of midnight, mainly across parts of Southeast Arkansas. These are rainfall totals through Midnight Friday morning.
Rainfall will continue today as Isaac moves across West Central Arkansas this morning and into Northwest Arkansas by the afternoon. Most of the rain associated with Isaac is North and East of the center, with far less rainfall West and South. As drier air wraps around the South side of the center, rainfall will become more scattered across Central Arkansas today. Bands of rain will likely persist well East of the Center through the afternoon as indicated by one of our computer models. (RPM model showing showers and heavy rain in Arkansas early Friday morning)
Rainfall totals across Central Arkansas will generally be in the 2 to 3 inch range through Friday, with some spots near 4 inches. Some spots in Eastern Arkansas may exceed 6 inches, especially where bands of rain redevelop well East of the center of Isaac. Far less rain is expected for Western Arkansas, where less than an inch of rain is expected.
