... Flash Flood Watch in effect through Saturday early evening...

The National Weather Service in Shreveport has issued a

* Flash Flood Watch for southeast Oklahoma... northeast
Texas... southwest Arkansas and extreme northwest
Louisiana..including the following counties and parishes... in
southeast Oklahoma... McCurtain. In southwest
Arkansas... Hempstead... Howard... Lafayette... Little
River... Miller... Nevada and Sevier. In northwest

intensity through today and tomorrow as an upper level tough and
a cold front edge slowly eastward. Locally heavy rainfall
amounts of one to three inches are expected... with isolated
higher amounts to near four inches. The soil remains saturated
and this new rainfall will quickly runoff into our already
swollen local and area wide drainage systems.


* Low lying and poor drainage areas... especially in the vicinity
of rapidly rising bayous... creeks and streams... due to potentially
very heavy rainfall... will be most prone to flash flooding.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A Flash Flood Watch means that conditions may develop that lead
to flash flooding. Flash flooding is a very dangerous situation.

You should monitor later forecasts and be prepared to take action
should flash flood warnings be issued.
