Heavy rain has been falling in the mid-section of the nation to start this week, and more thunderstorms are ahead for today (Wednesday). Flash Flood Watches have been issued in parts of Arkansas, Missouri, and Oklahoma. Oklahoma City set a rainfall record on Tuesday. More than 5" of rain was reported, creating flooding issues. Isolated areas of Kansas saw more than 6" of rain. With over-saturated soils, any additional rain could produce flooding. There is the potential for 3" to 6" of rain to fall along a cold front and low pressure center this afternoon into Thursday. The storms are not expected to be widespread, but with high humidity, a lot of rain could fall in a short amount of time. More rain is in the forecast for the weekend.
