ONGOING Flooding, but low risk of additional river flooding through Saturday 12z.

Minor river flooding is ongoing on the Arkansas River near La Junta, Colorado, and on the Red River near Dekalb, Texas.

During the past 24 hours, a weak cold front and associated upper level wave brought heavy rainfall to parts of the region. The heaviest rains feel across the Oklahoma City Metro area and south-southeastward toward Lake Texoma. Several locations reported over 3" of rainfall, with estimates even higher in a few spots. Some flash flooding occurred with this heavy rainfall, but river flooding is not expected. Another area of heavy rainfall occurred across the north and eastern areas of the Tulsa Metro area and southeastward to the Arkansas border. A few areas received over 3" in this area, as well.

The weak cold front is expected to remain over the southern half of the area today, producing scattered showers and storms again. Areal coverage should be less today. However, deep atmospheric moisture is still in place, so any storms that do develop could cause brief, heavy rainfall. Flash flooding will be a concern again today in the areas that see the stronger storms.

Other than what was mentioned above, river flooding is next expected during the next 24 hours.
