From 4:30 AM:

The flash flood watch continues for much of the area and heavy rainfall will also continue at times across northern OK.
Several intersections and low lying areas are flooding this morning due to the excessive rains. Travel may be an issue early this morning in spots, so we encourage you to remain aware of this potential.

The pattern will remain active for much of Saturday and part of Sunday before another round of storms will arrive Monday. Tuesday through the end of next week should be cooler and drier.

From 2:48 AM:

Good Morning.

Our rain event continues this morning across most of northern OK with flooding issues in several locations.

Roadways and low lying areas are becoming flooded and travel is difficult.

I’ll attempt to update this discussion as time permits, but it may be difficult due to the active weather.
