Evening forecast for Tuesday, February 20

Weather

A slow-moving cold front and high amounts of moisture will bring widespread and, at times, heavy rainfall to the ArkLaMiss over the next few days.

The front itself likely won’t move through the region until Saturday. A ridge of high pressure to our southeast, and a trough of low pressure to our northwest will funnel in high amounts of subtropical moisture through the night. As the front approaches the region tomorrow, the rain will begin. Rain totals will vary from 1-5″ area-wide, with locally higher amounts possible. The consistently higher totals will likely remain across south Arkansas.

A few strong storms will also be possible tomorrow afternoon. A *Marginal Risk* of severe weather has been posted for north Louisiana, with hail or an isolated tornado as the main threats.

The rain continues through Thursday, with more scattered activity left for the weekend before the front pushes through late Saturday.
