The 1st-grade smiley guide to chasing terrain in Arkansas.  Terrian ranges from pretty flat Mississippi River Delta land to  Dense Forests to the Ozarks.

I am chasing. Target for now is Pine Bluff Arkansas

Y'all be prepared. There are dry counties surrounded by dry counties in that **** hole state.

Besides the current ongoing flooding, more heavy rain is possible mid next week (48 hour total Tuesday-Thurs).

Looking at how things are going the current hatching is on the money for areas that will have the best tornado threat.  The issue when you get east of the TN River or even US 45 is that the low-pressure system begins to race off to the north and takes the best lift, backed winds, etc.  out of the area.  If storms were to form out ahead of the system then some could track into Western Middle TN with a more significant severe threat, but if they don't it looks like we are dealing with a weakening squall line/QLCS once you get east of the TN River/LBL. 

Still could see quite a bit of trees down even with winds that are barely severe or even just sub-severe (45-58MPH) due to the saturated ground, so that is something to keep in mind.

Everyone please be careful if you go out tomorrow. We have lost too many storm chasers lately. It's extremely dangerous even if you know what you are doing and in a group. If you are alone and don't know what you are doing, it's a potential death trap-especially without a good radar, and knowledge of the local road network. Most of us who have been out know that a bad situation can crop up in a hurry. Good luck and stay safe!

Like I predicted earlier in the week the Mississippi River now has a crest of 40.0 up this way. That is still subject to go up. Especially with the rain next week. That rain is not calculated in the crest.

Lol.

Mississippi and most of Poinsett and Craighead counties are just as flat and treeless as the southern Delta, but otherwise spot on and hilarious.

I can testify that Mississippi Co. needs to be in the green smiley area. There is a stretch of Highway I drive where I can see a flashing red light 5 miles down the road.
