Be safe, everyone - Isaac looks to be an impressive overnight visitor.

This from a weather service broadcast:

Since Isaac is forecast to move from south to north across Arkansas, that means the worst weather will occur to the east of the track, placing most of Arkansas in the vulnerable area. Maximum rainfall amounts are forecast to exceed 7 inches.

For this afternoon and tonight, the tornado threat will encompass much of Arkansas, but the favored area will be the southeastern quarter of the state.

As for winds, 20 to 30 mph with gusts to 40 mph or so seems like a good average. Winds may be somewhat less in northern Arkansas.

I know we are supposed to get slammed tomorrow and maybe Sat as well. Tonight is supposed to be thunder storms. Let's all hope we get enough rain to help the drought, but let's not ask for more than we absolutely need. Remember it is said: be careful what you ask for???

I've been watching live radar off and on and see several holes developing in the system, but there will still be heavy rain on top of some of us, then clear for a while, then hit again. Here in west L.R. our rain started @ 1:15, heavy for a while then slacked off. It was one of the outer bands of the system, but the heavier rain should be here soon.

A team of us are gong to west Clark County Monday to do some archeology work and the man I'm riding with commented on the possibility the roads may be washed out. I told him I didn't care if we had to use 4WD all the way in as long as we got rain .

according to what I am seeing here, we should get hit about 8am tomorrow morning. I am sure we will have a little rain this evening. Isn't it amazing, the sky is completely blue right now and I can't believe we will get a huge storm. Boy does mom nature have a funny way of doing things.

It was NOT the event we were expecting, although our transformer blew long before the heavy rain. and was out for a good while. Still drizzly in the River Valley - nice and cool. Looks like it will heat up over the next few days, though.

Grateful for no flooding, but if it will keep up a nice steady rain for the next day - hey, we'll take it.

It looks like it has stopped raining here, but may start up later. It was, as you said, a nice steady rain. I am hoping tomorrow isn't bad for the first tailgating of the year. We won't be going this time: Pat fianlly finished his radiation, is doing fine, but believe it or not, he was playing ball with the neighbors dog and slipped on the gravel. Not only did he break 2 ribs he ruined his favorite shorts...

Did you get the rain you needed? Much of Arkansas has been in a severe drought!

I think the rain was pretty well all over the state with some flooding in the southeast part. It wiped out the rice and soybean farmers who still had stuff in the field. Here in west Little Rock we got 3 1/2 inches between 1:15 yesterday afternoon and 7:00 this morning with about 2 inches of that coming after midnight. It was a blessing for many but not for the flood victims and some of the farmers. Our prayers are for them.

Poor Pat! - so glad to hear he is through with his radiation, though....sorry you are missing the tailgating. Hoping the rain perked everything up your way.

Too bad the wind didn't blow hard enough to get rid of the mosquitoes. I swear they will carry me off the deck one day (no small feat).

Nita, I'm so sorry to hear about your hubby's injuries (as well as missing the tailgating I know you love!). And Sam, my sympathies for your mosquito situation - maybe you're too dingdanged sweet?
