A strong, but slow moving storm system is set to bring some potentially heavy rainfall for parts of Arkansas Wednesday into Thursday morning. An area of low pressure will intensify over Texas and push a warm front Northward towards Arkansas by Wednesday afternoon

The low pressure will move Northwest Wednesday night bringing warm air into Central Arkansas ahead of a cold front. Showers and some thunderstorms are likely ahead of this front Thursday morning.

A few isolated strong storms are not out of the question early Thursday morning, but the main concern will be the heavy rainfall. Widespread 2 inch amounts with locally up to 4 inches is possible by the time all the rain ends Thursday afternoon.

Unusually mild temperatures will follow this system with highs well into the 60s Thursday and Friday.
