The weather is usual for some, but quite unusual for others. While central and southern Arkansas "bake" in triple digit heat index temperatures, northern Arkansas has received so much rainfall, flash flooding has been a real problem.
If you were watching Daybreak Thursday morning, I called this pattern the "Ring Of Fire". As a ridge of high pressure is situated just southwest of the state, the storm track is runs right through southern Kansas, southern Missouri, and northern Arkansas. Storms fire up in the corridor over and over again creating flash flooding.
|Doppler radar rainfall estimates over the past 7 days really shows where the heaviest rain has occurred and the LACK of rain underneath that BIG area of high pressure. That's up to 10 inches across Kansas into far northern Arkansas.|
