Scattered showers and storms are expected today for eastern Oklahoma and western Arkansas as a front sags south toward the area. The best potential for severe storms will likely be this afternoon, where the airmass has a chance to become unstable ahead of the front. The main threat from any severe storms will be isolated damaging winds. Heavy rain will also be a threat, with localized flash flooding possible especially across far northeast Oklahoma.
Heavy rain is ongoing this morning across northeast Oklahoma with 2- 3" of rain reported since midnight in some spots. Storm total rainfall amounts of 3-5" are possible by Friday morning. The rain will continue this morning, with a break mid day, and then another round of heavy rain is expected tonight. Remember to never drive into flooded roads.
