Nowcast | as of 2:56 PM CDT on July 7, 2015

At 2:56 PM...Doppler radars detected widespread showers and embedded thunderstorms across eastern Oklahoma and northwest Arkansas. A band of heavier rain extended from near Stidham in eastern Oklahoma to around Marble in northwest Arkansas. General movement was toward the northeast. Through 5:00 PM...occasional showers and isolated thunderstorms will remain possible for the majority of eastern Oklahoma and northwest Arkansas. The band of heavier rains will gradually lift northward during this time..impacting more of northeast Oklahoma...while continuing to affect the northwest corner of Arkansas. The relatively slow movement of this band and continued hourly rainfall rates in excess of one inch per hour will maintain a hightened flood threat. Outside of this band hourly rainfall rates of one tenth to one quarter inch will be common.

Flood Warning, Flash Flood Warning
Statement as of 2:28 PM CDT on July 07, 2015

The National Weather Service in Tulsa has issued a

* Flood Warning for
the Illinois River near Watts
* from Wednesday afternoon to Thursday morning, or until the warning
is cancelled.
* At 1:00 PM Tuesday, the stage was 3.82 feet.
* Flood stage is 13.0 feet.
* Minor flooding is forecast.
* Forecast... the Illinois River near Watts is expected to rise above
flood stage Wednesday afternoon and continue to rise to near 13.5
feet by Wednesday evening. The river is expected to fall below
flood stage Thursday before dawn. This forecast is based on rain that
has already occurred as well as forecast rainfall. More rainfall than
currently expected would cause the river to go higher. Interests near
the river should continue to monitor the latest forecasts.
* Impact... at 13.0 feet, minor flooding occurs from the Arkansas
border to Chewey bridge. Extreme turbulence makes the river unsafe
for floating.
