Southeastern and eastern Arkansas along the Mississippi River will see the greatest effects from Ida since the center of the storm is expected to pass closer.

Winds will pick up Monday through Tuesday at a rate of 15 to 25 mph. Gusts could be 30 to 45 mph and isolated power outages are possible in Chicot and Desha counties primarily.

Rainfall totals will be 1 to 3” with the highest amounts near the Mississippi River.

For the rest of the state, it will be breezy Monday through Tuesday.

Winds could gust 20 to 25 mph at times with periods of showers—some heavy showers will be possible. But at times there will be breaks of sun on Monday. 

Most of the rain will be out of the region Tuesday morning.

Some locations will not see any rain from Ida, especially Southwest Arkansas.
