Flood warnings, advisories issued in Oklahoma after rainfall

In addition, heavier short term rainfall rates associated with bands of heavy rain showers and thunderstorms could result in localized flash flooding along small streams and in urban areas. Seas will quickly build late Monday night to 10 - 14 feet across much of the coastal waters, with the highest seas north of Cape Lookout.

That amount of rain in a relatively short amount of time could certainly lead to flooding. Damaging 60+ miles per hour wind gusts are another hazard from any stray storm through early evening. An additional half an inch to one inch of rain is expected to fall by Monday morning.

WIS First Alert Meteorologist Ben Tanner says the storms that passed through overnight and others that are moving into the area from the west are moving slowly. At this point, scattered rain looks possible through the weekend.

Trump says strong Europe 'very important'
President Donald Trump said he wants Congress to pass legislation scaling back Obamacare and a spending bill to keep the USA government running next week.

FLASH FLOOD WARNING means flooding has been reported or will occur shortly.

The race, which is the eighth stop in the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series, is now scheduled to start 1 p.m. on Monday. The chance for rain will gradually decrease Tuesday. Excessive ponding on roads will be an issue for the morning commute tomorrow, and some roads may become impassible. The high is expected to reach 68. Rainfall totals look to be near 3-6inches. The rest of the week it should be warmer without rain.
