Tuesday, 1:30 PM Update
LITTLE ROCK, Ark. – A very heavy band of rain loosely associated with the remnants of Barry dumped up to 18 inches of rain in parts of Southwest Arkansas West of the Murfreesboro area. A band of 5 to 10 inches of rain extended from near Dierks to around Arkadelphia. 3 inches plus fell in a band from South Central Arkansas through Pine Bluff and Stuttgart in Southeast Arkansas. Rainfall amounts were far less across the Little Rock metro area with less than an inch.
A few isolated heavy downpours will continue through the afternoon. Rainfall will gradually diminish by late afternoon into the evening
The National Weather Service continues a flash flood watch until 6 p.m. for central, southern and eastern Arkansas.
We’ll say goodbye to Barry Wednesday and the remainder of the work week will be drier as a high pressure system sets up to our south. That high will pump in more warmth and moisture from the Gulf of Mexico, leading to higher temperatures and humidity.
