Showers and thunderstorms in advance of a cold front will make their way into the northwest corner of Arkansas this evening and continue progressing toward the southeast after that.
Around sunrise Tuesday, the leading edge of the showers and thunderstorms should be close to a line from Jonesboro to Little Rock to Ashdown.
After that, the progression of the rain will slow down quite a bit. It will probably take until after midnight Tuesday night for the storms to exit the southern edge of Arkansas. Some showers may linger in the south all the way into Wednesday morning.
Any severe weather should be very isolated.
Most rainfall amounts will be 1/2 inch or less, but a few spots will probably pick up 1/2 to 1 inch.
