evening... although periods of moderate rain will continue.

include... most of southeast Oklahoma along and south of Interstate
40.

Excessive runoff from this storm will cause flooding of small creeks
and streams... highways and underpasses. Additionally... country roads
and farmlands along the banks of creeks and streams and other low
lying areas are subject to flooding.

Do not drive your vehicle into areas where the water covers the
roadway. The water depth may be too great to allow your car to cross
safely. Vehicles caught in rising water should be abandoned quickly.
Move to higher ground.

* Rainfall amounts of 3 to 6 inches will be common this weekend
through Monday morning... with locally higher amounts approaching
9 inches possible. The heaviest totals are likely to remain west
of a line from Miami Oklahoma to Hugo Oklahoma.
However... widespread flash flooding is likely to occur across
much of eastern Oklahoma given the saturated soils.

Saturday night and Sunday may yield a particularly dangerous
flood situation.

Anyone who has outdoor activities or travel planned over the
coming Holiday weekend should closely monitor conditions for
possible closures of roads and recreational areas... and plan
accordingly.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A Flash Flood Watch means rapidly rising water or flooding is
possible within the watch area.

If you are in the watch area... keep informed... and be ready for
quick action if flash flooding is observed or if a warning is
issued.

If you live near... or travel across a stream... creek or river
often subject to flooding... now is the time to prepare for
dangerous flooding.
