TEXAS.

.DAY ONE...TODAY AND TONIGHT...

.FLOODING...
NUMEROUS RIVERS AND STREAMS REMAIN ABOVE FLOOD STAGE TODAY...AND
THE SOIL IS SATURATED OVER MOST OF OKLAHOMA AND NORTH TEXAS.

MAY BE HEAVY ENOUGH TO CAUSE ADDITIONAL FLOODING...OR WORSEN
EXISTING FLOODING.

.THUNDERSTORMS...
THERE IS A SLIGHT RISK OF SEVERE THUNDERSTORMS OVER SOUTHERN
OKLAHOMA AND NORTH TEXAS...SOUTH OF A LINE FROM ALTUS TO ARDMORE
