Significant Flooding Expected Across Eastern Oklahoma

Posted: Updated:
TULSA, Oklahoma -

The threat of severe weather and an increasing risk of significant flooding continue for Saturday.

WARN Interactive Radar

Rounds of storms continue to progress across northeastern Oklahoma this morning, and will eventually spread further south into southeastern Oklahoma as the day progresses. A warm, humid, and unstable air mass continues to linger across our southern and eastern counties, which will keep the threat for severe weather in the forecast today, particularly from Tulsa to the east and southeast. Damaging winds, hail, and even an isolated tornado remain possible.

Weather Alerts

In addition to severe weather threats, the risk of flooding will continue to increase significantly throughout our Saturday. This is a very dangerous setup for flooding, as another 3 to 6 inches of rain with isolated higher amounts could fall on top of the very heavy rains we've already seen, especially just to the east of Tulsa. Please be very aware of your surroundings throughout the day and avoid any flooded roads. Turn Around, Don't Drown!

There will be a big range of afternoon temperatures across Green Country thanks to a stalled out frontal boundary. Temperatures may range from the upper 50s to low 60s northwest of Tulsa to the low 80s across southeast Oklahoma this afternoon!

Heavy storms will continue through the evening hours, particularly in our far eastern counties. Most of the heavy storms should be finally clearing off to our east by about midnight, though some moderate showers may linger into Sunday morning.

Expect much chillier weather to filter in on Sunday with brisk westerly winds and temperatures likely only in the low 50s! Some much more pleasant weather will return by early next week as we start to dry out.
