SPC AC 230651 Day 2 Convective Outlook NWS Storm Prediction Center Norman OK Fri Feb 23 2018 Valid 241200Z - 251200Z THERE IS AN ENHANCED RISK OF SEVERE THUNDERSTORMS FROM PARTS OF THE ARKLATEX INTO THE LOWER TO MID MISSISSIPPI VALLEY. THERE IS A SLIGHT RISK OF SEVERE THUNDERSTORMS FROM PARTS OF NORTHEAST TEXAS INTO THE LOWER TO MID MISSISSIPPI AND TENNESSEE VALLEYS. THERE IS A MARGINAL RISK OF SEVERE THUNDERSTORMS FROM PARTS OF THE SOUTHERN PLAINS AND LOWER MISSISSIPPI VALLEY NORTH-NORTHEASTWARD INTO THE OHIO VALLEY. ...SUMMARY... Scattered strong to severe thunderstorms are expected to develop and move east-northeastward on Saturday from parts of northeast Texas into the lower to mid Mississippi and Tennessee Valleys. Tornadoes, wind damage and hail will be possible with the more intense storms.

Good Afternoon: Two rounds of heavy rainfall are expected across Arkansas through this weekend. The first is expected to fall across the state from this evening through Friday morning. The second is expected to occur Saturday afternoon and evening. These two rounds of heavy rainfall will lead to flash flooding and river flooding across much of Arkansas through the weekend. The heaviest rain and greatest flash flooding threat is likely to set up along the I-30/US-67 corridors through this weekend. In addition to the flooding concerns, severe weather is possible Saturday afternoon and evening. The primary hazards are expected to be damaging winds and isolated tornadoes. The flash flooding threat is greatest tonight through Friday morning, and then again on Saturday afternoon and evening.

Weather Briefing NWS The very active weather pattern we have been talking about continues to unfold with heavy rain expected over a good part of the state for the next several days. South to southwest flow aloft continues to feed copious amounts of gulf moisture into the region. Precipitable water values (the amount of water that theoretically could fall) are 250% or more than the norm for this time of the year. A cold front will be moving into the area later today with widespread showers and isolated thunderstorms developing as it does. The concern is the cold front will be parallel to the upper winds and will really have nothing to push it through. As a result, rain will be be persistent and with the amount of moisture available, heavy at times. The focus for the heaviest rainfall this afternoon through early Wednesday will be along and north/west of the Interstate 30/US 67 corridor. The focus will shift south of Interstate 30/US 67 corridor Wednesday through early Thursday. The front will finally push through the state Thursday, briefly stall along the gulf coast before lifting back to the north for additional rain chances Thursday night and continuing into Saturday. Heavy rain will be possible again until the system finally clears the state late Saturday. Flood watches are already in effect for almost all of Arkansas at this time. The timing of the watches differ across parts of the state. I would recommend checking the website of the office or offices serving your particular area for the specifics. The latest data is now showing the possibility of strong thunderstorms on Saturday as the cold front finally moves through the region but more on that later. Widespread, total rain amounts up to six inches or more seems plausible with this system. As a result, flash flooding and eventually river flooding will be a concern and could be dependent upon where the axis of heavy rain sets up. The north and west have seen very dry conditions of late and if the heavy rain falls here, the impacts could be lessened somewhat. However, the southeast has seen a lot of rain lately and if the heavy rain axis sets up here, it could be much more problematic. Once all the runoff reaches the rivers, they will likely rise and could become problematic These rivers include but are not restricted to the Black, Cache, Ouachita and White.

The very active weather pattern we have been talking about continues to unfold with heavy rain expected over a good part of the state for the next several days. South to southwest flow aloft will continue to feed copious amounts of gulf moisture into the region with precipitable water values well above normal for this time of the year. A cold front will be moving into the area with widespread showers and a maybe a few thunderstorms developing as it does. The problem is the cold front will be parallel to the upper winds and will really have nothing to push it through. As a result, rain will be be persistent and with the amount of moisture available, heavy at times. While some showers will be possible today, the widespread rain is expected to develop Tuesday and last into Wednesday as the front crawls through. The front will finally push through Thursday, briefly stall along the gulf coast before lifting back to the north for additional rain chances next weekend. Additional heavy rain will be possible again until the system finally clears the state late Saturday. Widespread, total rain amounts up to six inches or more seems plausible with this system.

The north and west have seen very dry conditions of late and if the heavy rain falls here, the impacts could be lessened somewhat. However, the southeast has seen a lot of rain lately and if the heavy rain axis sets up here, it could be much more problematic. Severe weather doesn't seem likely with this system as whatever thunderstorms develop will be elevated in nature. Also, the chances of winter weather have been pulled from the forecast based on the latest data. While we are certain of widespread rain this week, there remains some questions on where the axis of heavy rain will set up and the exact totals. Regardless, a good soaking is in store for the state. Stay tuned for further information as the event unfolds. Thank you Joe Goudsward National Weather Service Little Rock

Sunday, February 18, 2018 I am pleased to announce the arrests of two juvenile male students ages 12 and 17 for the graffiti at the Danville High School. Both are incarcerated at the Yell County Juvenile Detention Center pending a court appearance. I appreciate the numerous tips and leads today as our investigation team checked every single one of them. We will still have a heightened presence tomorrow with the help of the Yell County Sheriff's Department and Arkansas State Police. Thank you for your patience and support throughout the day!

Sunday, February 18, 2018 Sunday morning Danville Police officers responded to the Hugh Parker Field House on the campus of Danville High School in reference to a criminal mischief complaint. The suspects “tagged” the north side of the building with swastikas, stars and derogatory comments and also painted an inappropriate image on a nearby stop sign. Investigators took photographs and combed the area for clues Sunday into the afternoon hours. They also took surveillance footage from school cameras and hope to utilize it as well. Officials stated they observed footage of two suspects entering the campus at approximately 11:40 Friday night and leave at 11:57. Chief Padgett states school will resume on Monday with a heightened police presence. We understand Parkland is still fresh on everyone’s mind and we hope to ease those fears. We will be working with the Yell County Sheriff’s Office and Arkansas State Police as well. We really appreciate the cooperation from school officials and hope to quickly solve this. Anyone with information is asked to contact the Danville Police Department at 495-2122. A reward has also been offered for the arrest of the individuals responsible.

Winter Weather Briefing NWS We have another weather system moving across Arkansas this weekend. Initially it will bring light rain across the state from Friday evening through Saturday. Temperatures on Friday will be warm across the state and so all precipitation will definitely fall as rain on Friday and during the day on Saturday. Highs on Friday may climb into the upper 50s to lower 60s with Friday night's low holding in the mid 40s. This warm period will play an important role in the expected impacts as temperatures fall Saturday night. From Saturday evening through Saturday night, light rain is expected to continue to fall as temperatures fall below freezing across the northern part of the state. Rainfall rates are expected to be very light... possibly only falling as drizzle in some areas as temperatures fall below freezing Saturday night. Regardless, as temperatures fall below freezing and rain continues, some of this rain will begin to freeze upon reaching the ground forming a thin glaze of ice...especially on elevated surfaces. While temperatures are below freezing Saturday night through Sunday morning, rainfall amounts are expected to remain below one tenth of an inch. As a result, only light ice accumulations are expected at this time. Light ice accumulations are most likely on elevated surfaces as warm temperatures on Friday will likely bring ground temperatures up above freezing. Bridges, overpasses and other elevated surfaces are the most likely to see slick spots develop Saturday night through Sunday morning. As of Thursday afternoon, our confidence in ANY light freezing rain or drizzle falling across northern Arkansas is high. However forecast confidence in impacts and ice accumulations are somewhat low. The speed of falling temperatures Saturday night and redevelopment of rainfall Sunday morning are both factors that could change the forecast impacts moving forward. We are not expecting any significant impacts at this time, but we will continue to monitor the latest data and conditions and provide forecast updates as necessary. Dennis Cavanaugh NWS Little Rock

NWS Briefing A winter weather advisory has been issued for much of northern and parts of north center Arkansas. Winter weather will affect Arkansas Tuesday evening through Wednesday morning. Weather factors are coming together and indicating an increasing chance that winter weather will affect the area, including measurable freezing rain and sleet. A weather system will move through the area, and a cold air mass will filter into Arkansas, and freezing rain and sleet will develop. It will cause hazardous weather and driving conditions. A few hundreds to around a tenth or two of freezing rain and sleet may fall by the time the system pushes east of Arkansas on Wednesday. There is some potential if factors come together that isolated areas may receive more freezing rain amounts. Also ahead of the cold, scattered shows and thunderstorms will develop, with some stronger to severe storms that may produce hail around one inch. A marginal risk of severe storms has been issued by the Storm Prediction Center of much of central and southern Arkansas for this afternoon to evening to the early overnight. Otherwise, another weather system will affect Arkansas this coming weekend and bring rain, and again some potential for winter weather. Uncertainty does exist in the forecast for winter precipitation and it is dependent on the amount of moisture remaining on the back side of the system and how quickly the cold air filters into Arkansas. Please refer to the latest forecasts, advisories and possible warnings during this weather event.
