• Storm and rain chances arrive after soaking last week

    Quick Facts:

    • Showers and storms roll through starting late morning through the evening Tuesday
    • Chance of anything turning severe will be low
    • More rain chances for Wednesday


    After last week's rain, it is difficult to think about more rain moving in. Parts of Green Country had roads washed out and flooding from all the rain. Thankfully, the higher rainfall totals for this round of rain looks to be to the south and east of Green Country.

    For Tuesday, rain chances will start late morning. The showers and storms are developing in southern Oklahoma and moving to the northeast. As temperatures start to warm up, some of the showers and storms could get a little bit stronger. Again, the chance of anything reaching that severe level is low.

    Most of Green Country will see rain today with less than an inch of rain expected. Heavy pockets of rain will be possible as this round of rain moves through.

    Going into Wednesday, another round of rain is possible, but the overall impact is lower.

    Most of the rain on Wednesday will be isolated showers moving from northern portions of the area to the south. That is all as a cold front is moving through Green Country. Temperatures and winds will be changing behind the front.

    Two-day rainfall totals will be from a quarter of an inch (0.25") to about an inch (1"). There could be some areas that have localized higher totals.

    Even with an inch of rain, areas that are still soaked from last week's rain could see some problems. Remember that if you see moving water over a roadway, the best idea is to turn around and find another way.

    6 inches of moving water can knock an adult off their feet; 12 inches (1 foot) of moving water can float a small vehicle. It is also important to note that if you can't see the road, you don't actually know if it is there or not.
