(TULSA, Okla) A flash flood watch has been posted for much of eastern Oklahoma and western Arkansas from Wednesday evening through Thursday morning. 1 to 3 inches of rain will be common during this time with isolated to 4 to 5 inch amounts possible. This will likely cause flooding of low lying areas. River flooding is also likely along the Illinois River. A flash flood watch means rapidly rising water or flooding is possible within the watch area. Be especially cautious at night when it is harder to recognize the dangers of flash floods. If flash flooding is observed, act quickly. Do not stay in areas subject to flooding when water begins to rise. Motorists should not drive through water of unknown depth. Take a different route to reach your destination or wait until the water recedes.
