Meteorologist Mike Grogan: 3" Of Rain For Parts Of Oklahoma

Some parts of Oklahoma have received more than three inches of rain over the past 36 hours. 

Even heavier amounts have fallen in a few pockets of western and southern Oklahoma as well. 

Our soils have become saturated, which means any additional heavy rain could quickly lead to run-off.  That means it won't take long for low-lying spots to become inundated with water should a downpour occur. 

The Polecat Creek in Sapulpa has also risen just above flood stage and will remain in the minor flood category until early Tuesday morning.

For the rest of today, the rain will remain light so additional flooding issues are not anticipated.  A few more rounds of rain and isolated storms are possible through midweek.  This could cause another 1" or more of rain to fall over the next few days. 

Flood Watches are not up at this time, but be aware of any low spots that could quickly be covered in water.
