Flood Watch


Flood Watch
National Weather Service Tulsa OK
320 PM CST Fri Feb 23 2018

...Heavy Rainfall and Flooding Potential This Afternoon thru
Saturday...

.Multiple rounds of heavy rainfall are expected across much of
southeast Oklahoma and northwest Arkansas, as well as portions of
east central and northeast Oklahoma this afternoon through
early Saturday afternoon before a cold front pushes through the
region during the mid to late afternoon hours. Soils are becoming
increasingly saturated across the region, due to the rainfall
that has already occurred. Thus, the probability of rainfall
turning to runoff is increased, which could lead to flooding.

...FLOOD WATCH REMAINS IN EFFECT THROUGH SATURDAY AFTERNOON...

The Flood Watch continues for

* Portions of Arkansas and Oklahoma...including the following
  counties...in Arkansas...Benton...Carroll...Crawford...
  Franklin...Madison...Sebastian and Washington AR. in
  Oklahoma...Adair...Cherokee...Choctaw...Delaware...Haskell...
  Latimer...Le Flore...McIntosh...Muskogee...Ottawa...
  Pittsburg...Pushmataha and Sequoyah.

* Through Saturday afternoon

* Rainfall amounts of 1 to 3 inches will be common across the
  watch area, with locally higher amounts possible.

* This will likely lead to flooding of some low lying areas.
  Additional rainfall on top of recent rains will increase the
  potential for flash flooding and also some river flooding
  concerns.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

A flood watch means there is a potential for flooding based on
current forecasts. Drainage ditches, creeks, low water crossings
and other low lying areas are prone to rises and may flood. Most
flood related deaths occur in automobiles and flooding is the
leading cause of weather related deaths.

...HEAVY RAINFALL AND FLOOD POTENTIAL THROUGH SATURDAY...

This Outlook is for Northwest and West Central Arkansas as well as
much of Eastern Oklahoma.

.DAY ONE...This Afternoon and Tonight.

SEVERE THUNDERSTORM.
RISK...Limited.
AREA...Far Southeast Oklahoma.
ONSET...After Midnight.

FLASH FLOOD.
RISK...Limited.
 AREA...Northwest Arkansas and Locations Along and East of
   Highway 69 in Eastern Oklahoma.
ONSET...Ongoing.

HEAVY RAIN.
RISK...Elevated.
AREA...Northwest Arkansas and Locations ALong and East of
   Highway 69 in Eastern Oklahoma.
ONSET...Ongoing.

DISCUSSION...
Widespread rain showers with an isolated embedded thunder
potential will continue to spread across Eastern Oklahoma and
Northwest Arkansas this afternoon and tonight. Overnight...rain
showers will continue to be possible with an increasing
thunderstorm potential across Southeast Oklahoma into West Central
Arkansas after midnight as a frontal boundary lifts toward the
region. Thunderstorm development along the boundary could allow
for a limited strong to severe storm potential with large hail
being the main threat.

The heavy rainfall axis looks to set up across locations mainly
along and East of Highway 69 in Eastern Oklahoma through
Northwest Arkansas through tonight. Rainfall amounts in the 1 to 2
inch range through tonight could be possible over these
locations. A flood watch remains in effect through Saturday
afternoon as additional rains on top of recent rains will increase
flash flooding as well as river flooding concerns.

SPOTTER AND EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT ACTION STATEMENT...
Local Spotter Activation May Be Needed.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Saturday through Thursday.
SATURDAY...Thunderstorm Potential...Heavy Rain Potential.
SUNDAY THROUGH TUESDAY...No Hazards.
WEDNESDAY...Thunderstorm Potential.
THURSDAY...No Hazards.

EXTENDED DISCUSSION...
Rain shower and thunderstorm chances look to be ongoing across
Eastern Oklahoma and Northwest Arkansas Saturday ahead of a cold
front forecast to move through the region Saturday afternoon and
evening. Instability interacting with the front will help to
create a slight risk of severe weather mainly across parts of
Southeast Oklahoma into West Central Arkansas. Another round of
heavy rainfall across Southeast Oklahoma into Northwest Arkansas
will continue flash flooding as well as river flooding concerns
Saturday. Precipitation looks to taper off from west to east
Saturday afternoon and should exit with the front by Saturday
evening.

Drier conditions are forecast Sunday into the beginning of next
week. However...shower and thunderstorm chances look to return by
mid week as another low pressure system approaches.

...A Winter Weather Advisory is in effect for tonight into
Saturday morning for Ellis county...

This hazardous weather outlook is for portions of central...south
central...southwest and west central Kansas.

.DAY ONE...Today and tonight.

Day 1 Discussion
----------------

Aarea of dense freezing fog are expected to persist into
mid-morning for much of southwestern Kansas. Slick spots
on sidewalks and roads are expected. The fog is expected to
lift by late morning.

Light freezing drizzle is expected to develop late this evening
and then persist into Saturday morning. Roads may become slick
and hazardous across Ellis county. Temperatures may be warm enough
farther south so that any drizzle would not freeze upon impact.
But additional counties may need to be added to the advisory
farther south if it appears it will be colder. Farther northwest,
along a corridor from Syracuse to Scott City, the precipitation
may be in the form of light snow or flurries with only a dusting
at most accumulation.

Day 1 Hazards
-------------
* Fog: Significant risk
* Freezing rain: Elevated risk
* Snow: Limited risk

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Saturday through Thursday.

Days 2-7 Discussion
-------------------

Lingering freezing drizzle is expected Saturday morning, which
may lead to slick roads and sidewalks. Temperatures are expected
to warm to above freezing by late morning, which would melt any
ice.

There is an elevated fire weather risk Monday as temperatures
warm and humidity drops in the afternoon.

Days 2-7 Hazards
----------------
* Saturday
  - Non thunderstorm wind: Limited risk
  - Ice accumulation: Elevated risk
  - Snow: Limited risk
  - Fire weather: Limited risk

* Sunday
  No hazards.

* Monday
  - Non thunderstorm wind: Limited risk
  - Fire weather: Elevated risk

* Tuesday
  No hazards.

* Wednesday
  No hazards.

* Thursday
  No hazards.
