Thanks to the likelihood of several more rounds of showers and storms dumping rain over western Arkansas and eastern Oklahoma, a FLASH FLOOD WATCH has been issued until Wednesday at 7PM.

What is a Flash Flood Watch?

-Essentially, with several more rounds of rain expected, the ground will remain fairly saturated. If a downpour comes along and sits over your backyard for a while, flash flooding could occur.  Because of the threat of 2-4 more inches of rain, flooding is a possibility.  This would not be long-term flooding, thus why it’s called “flash”.
