Dangerous Flooding Outlook!

Very heavy rain will develop over the region as the day progresses. Flash flood warnings are already out in southwest Oklahoma.
These are the rainfall amounts forecast to 6am. 

The ground is completely saturated. Major flooding will likely develop in the areas that receive 4 inches or more.

Farther south, flood producing rains will likely develop in Texas tonight and Sunday.

Please take this seriously: Do not try to cross flooded areas by foot or by car. That is the leading cause of flooding deaths. If fact, I would recommend curtaining travel after dark in the red area unless absolutely necessary.

If you live in a flood-prone area, please be prepared to move to higher ground at the first sign of rising water.

  1. Thanks for the heads up Mike. This has been one of the wettest months for May that I have seen in quite some time.
