LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - As its neighbors to the west got clobbered this weekend by an ice storm, forecasters say much of Arkansas will see its warmer side in the heavy rainfall and thunderstorms expected to push into the state.

The National Weather Service says showers and thunderstorms could develop Sunday and intensify by Monday as a cold front moves east over Arkansas. The storms could produce damaging winds, heavy rainfall and small hail across the southern half of the state.

The heavy rainfall could increase the threat of flash flooding through Tuesday before the cold front moves out the state by the middle of the week.

Parts of the central U.S., including Kansas, Oklahoma and Missouri, are grappling with an ice storm and below-freezing wintry weather over the holiday weekend.
