LITTLE ROCK, Ark. – The National Weather Service says there’s a high risk of excessive rainfall on Friday with more heavy rain likely in our region of the country.

Thunderstorms will continue into Saturday for the Lower Mississippi and Tennessee Valleys, with severe weather likely.

The biggest concern on Friday will be for heavy rain where soils are already oversaturated.

That creates a high risk of excessive rainfall/flash flooding in those areas where any additional rain will cause dangerous flooding conditions. 

On Saturday, severe weather is forecast for the Lower Mississippi and Tennessee Valleys. The Storm Prediction Center has currently outlooked an Enhanced Risk of severe weather for eastern Arkansas, northern Mississippi, and southwestern Tennessee. 

The rain is expected to finally end on Saturday night after a cold front sweeps through the region, drying out the atmosphere.
