Flash Flood Watch
Issued: 10:33 AM CDT May. 25, 2019 – National Weather Service

... Flash Flood Watch remains in effect through Sunday morning...

The Flash Flood Watch continues for

* a portion of northeast Oklahoma... including the following
counties... Craig... creek... Nowata... Osage... Pawnee... Rogers...
Tulsa and Washington OK.

* Through Sunday morning

* another complex of storms is expected to move into northeast
Oklahoma tonight. The complex is expected to weaken with time as
it moves east, however there is potential for another half to
one and half inches of rain from Osage and Pawnee counties east
to Ottawa County. This additional rainfall would fall on already
saturated soils that have already received roughly 9 to 14
inches over the past 7 days alone. It will not take much to
cause flash flooding as the new rains will instantly become
runoff.

* Remember, most flood related deaths occur in automobiles and
flooding is the leading cause of weather related deaths. Heed
all Road closures, and never drive around barricades.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A Flash Flood Watch means rapidly rising water or flooding is
possible within the watch area.
