Flash flood warnings from the National Weather Service for parts of central, east, north-central and western Arkansas.

Counties across the northwest half of Arkansas can expect heavy rains Sunday with possible flash flooding and severe winds, National Weather Service forecasters said.

Chris Buonanno, the science operations officer for the National Weather Service, said people north of Mena to Searcy should be on alert for flash flooding in their area. Later on Sunday afternoon, severe thunderstorms with damaging winds may move into the area, Buonanno said.

Counties to the south of Interstate 40 are threatened with severe thunderstorms this afternoon, with that threat increasing as you move toward the Louisiana boarder. The threat of a tornado is possible, especially in the southern portions of the state, Buonanno said.

A flash-flooding warning is in effect through Monday evening for parts of central, east, north-central and western Arkansas, the National Weather Service said.
