Heavy rain and thunderstorms are pushing into Green Country today bringing a threat for localized flash flooding and a low-end threat for severe wind gusts and hail.  

An isolated tornado can't entirely be ruled out in southeast Oklahoma. This wave will be pushing through the Tulsa area between noon and 4 p.m. Up to 1" rainfall totals are possible this afternoon with some spots, mainly in southeast Oklahoma, seeing the potential for even more than that through early evening.

The heavy rain and storm activity should shift to our east by early evening, but more rain and thunderstorms are possible into Wednesday as well. The severe threat is very low on Wednesday, but the flooding threat remains, especially for our far eastern counties where more rain is likely to fall.
