Thunderstorms and Heavy Rain for Texas

A slow moving system will produce strong to severe thunderstorms and heavy to excessive rainfall across Texas with isolated large hail, damaging winds and localized flooding possible. These hazards will gradually spread into parts of adjacent states of Arkansas, Louisiana and Oklahoma by midweek. Meanwhile, most of the country will see above average high temperatures for the rest of the week. Read More >

The National Weather Service depends on accurate reporting of severe weather in its mission to protect lives and property. We would like to hear of any significant weather phenomena that you observe, though we are particularly interested in receiving timely reports of tornadoes, one inch (quarter-sized) and larger hail, wind gusts of 58 mph or more, and flash flooding. Winter weather reports, including hazardous road conditions and snowfall are also very helpful.

The National Weather Service in Tulsa serves the counties depicted in the map at the bottom of this page.

For life-threatening and imminent severe weather threats, please contact local law enforcement immediately (even if you also contact us by social media or email) and ask that they relay your report to the National Weather Service.

You can report significant weather using these means:

When posting weather reports to social media, it is helpful to include the hashtag #okwx for Oklahoma or #arwx for Arkansas reports.

When timeliness is not an issue, you may send weather reports and photos to our webmaster at SR-TSA.webmaster@noaa.gov.  From time to time, we receive weather photos that would enhance our severe weather training, outreach, and other education efforts. If we may use the photos that you send us for non-profit purposes, please let us know. We strive to include photo credits whenever possible.

The National Weather Service in Tulsa serves in Eastern Oklahoma and Northwest Arkansas.
