LITTLE ROCK, AR - Rain continues to pound the Natural State and more is on the way. As a cold front works it's way across Arkansas there will be several waves of rain during the morning and early afternoon period. With enough cold air sweeping through Northwest Arkansas there is the chance for the rain to turn over to a freezing mix of sleet and snow. Accumulations are not expected to impact travel.
Once we reach the late afternoon hours the rain should be coming to an end. After this wet pattern has passed many cities will collect two to five inches of rain.
Due to the large amount of rain there is the possibility of flash flooding over a few local roadways and creeks, so be alert while traveling. At this time, there is no major road ways closed down due to high water.
Besides the rainy outlook, our temperatures will remain cold in the low-mid 40's. By Monday night we'll stumble to the mid 30's.
Wintry weather is also not out of the question later this work week for parts of Central Arkansas. An upper level disturbance will race across Arkansas late Wednesday. As this disturbance moves through the state, it may promote a few flurries or sleet pellets. No big accumulations is on tab nor is any travel hazard expected out of this event.
We'll finally break out in sunshine and milder weather toward the latter half of the work week. Be sure to watch Jeff Baskin tonight at 5pm, 9pm and 10pm on FOX16 for the very latest weather development.
