...Heavy Rainfall and Flooding Potential later Today thru

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

Including the cities of Ozark, Charleston, Fort Smith, Antlers,
Clayton, Hugo, Wilburton, and Poteau
913 AM CST Fri Feb 23 2018

  Latimer...Le Flore and Pushmataha.

* 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


A flood watch means there is a potential for flooding based on
current forecasts. Drainage ditches, creeks 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.
