Arkansas received quite the downpour yesterday! While there wasn’t a major severe weather event (except for a Flash Flood Watch and some Flood Warnings and Flash Flood Warnings, as well as a Winter Weather Advisory in Northwest Arkansas), Arkansas did receive a major share of much-needed rain, as well as some intense rumbles of thunder during the event.
