The National Weather Service in Tulsa has issued a flash flood watch for a portion of southeastern Oklahoma including LeFlore County from Wednesday morning through Thursday morning.
Widespread two to three inches of rain will likely fall on Wednesday morning through Wednesday night to the south of a line from McAlester to Poteau. Local amounts up to four to five inches are possible. Rainfall of this amount could lead to flash flooding.
In addition to LeFlore County, the watch is for Choctaw, Latimer, Pittsburg and Pushmatahah counties.
A flash flood watch means rapidly rising water of flooding is possible within the watch area.
