The remnants of what was once Hurricane Isaac gave most of Arkansas a good and much needed soaking Thursday and Thursday night, with many spots receiving 2 to 4 inches of rain across the State as of early Friday afternoon.
A very heavy band of rain developed Southeast of the Little Rock area early Friday morning, drenching Fordyce and Pine Bluff and causing extensive flooding. Pine Bluff received nearly 8 inches of rain total since Thursday, with some spots in Jefferson County even more. Below is the radar rainfall estimate showing where the heaviest band of rain fell.
The white area represents the band of heaviest rain, with 8 to possibly as much as 10 inches in parts of Jefferson County.
By Friday afternoon, the remnants of Isaac were heading through Northern Arkansas into Missouri, with some leftover rain mainly across parts of Northeast Arkansas.
