Rain spread across northwest Arkansas today in response to a weather disturbance reaching in from the south. This system brought copious amounts of moisture with it, forcing widespread rainfall. Meanwhile, a stronger weather system was over northern Texas, and will also continue to force moisture into northwest Arkansas tonight into Friday, before moving slowly into the lower Mississippi valley Friday night.

Otherwise, rainfall amounts between 1 to 2 inches are expected along and south of Highway 412 and east of Arkansas highway 23, with locally higher amounts approaching 3 inches possible across portions of Newton county. Localized flooding will be possible where the heavier rain bands develop, but this should not become widespread. Lesser amounts are expected to the north of U.S. highway 412 and west of Interstate 49, across the far northwest corner of Arkansas. Meanwhile, a cold front will move into northwest Arkansas this evening. Gusty north winds appear likely across portions of northwest Arkansas behind the front. The gusty winds will likely continue into Friday.

The forecast is very quiet after this system clears our area, with dry conditions for much of the weekend and into the first half of next week. Temperatures should be at or above seasonal normal after Friday.

...This Day in Weather History...

In 1987, 1 to 4 inches of snow were recorded across most of northwest Arkansas.
