An enhanced risk of severe thunderstorms will exist across southeast Oklahoma and western Arkansas today and tonight. A strong upper level storm system will interact with a frontal boundary draped over the region to bring storms to the region. Multiple rounds of strong to severe storms are expected thru tonight.
Significant flooding is likely through Sunday morning across portions of eastern Oklahoma into northwestern Arkansas. Flood watches are in effect during this time for the potential of a swath of as much as 5 to 8 inches of rain with several locations seeing a bit more. This will result in flash flooding and river flooding for portions of the area given recent heavy rains and saturated soils.
