The National Weather Service in Norman has issued a Flood Watch for portions of central Oklahoma, northern Oklahoma, northwest Oklahoma, southwest Oklahoma and western Oklahoma from late this afternoon through Wednesday night.


This includes the following counties, in central Oklahoma, Canadian, Kingfisher, Lincoln, Logan, Oklahoma and Payne. In northern Oklahoma, Garfield, Grant, Kay and Noble. In northwest Oklahoma, Alfalfa, Blaine, Dewey, Major and Woods. In southwest Oklahoma, Caddo. In western Oklahoma, Custer and Washita.


Excessive runoff may result in flooding of rivers, creeks, streams, and other low-lying and flood-prone locations. Flooding may occur in poor drainage and urban areas.


Multiple rounds of showers and thunderstorms are expected later today through Wednesday. Some of these storms may produce locally heavy rainfall, and flooding will be possible especially in areas where numerous thunderstorms move through the same locations.
