... Flash Flood Watch now in effect through Tuesday morning...

The Flash Flood Watch is now in effect for

* portions of southwest Arkansas... northwest Louisiana...
southeast Oklahoma and Texas... including the following areas...
   in southwest Arkansas... Columbia... Hempstead... Howard...
Lafayette... Little River... Miller... Nevada and Sevier. In

River... Rusk... Sabine... San Augustine... Shelby... Smith...

* Through Tuesday morning

* showers and thunderstorms will increase today over southeast
Oklahoma... southwest Arkansas... East Texas and northwest
Louisiana... ahead of a strong upper level disturbance that will
lift northeast across the region. Locally heavy rainfall is
possible in the stronger storms... falling over already saturated
grounds from heavy rainfall that has fallen in the last week.
Rainfall amounts of one to three inches... with isolated higher
amounts... are expected this afternoon and tonight. Another
strong upper level disturbance will move through the region late
Monday afternoon and Monday night... resulting in another round
of locally heavy rainfall. Rainfall amounts with this second
system will range from two to four inches... with isolated higher
amounts. This will result in increased runoff and the potential
for flash flooding.

* Low lying and poor drainage areas... especially in the vicinity
of rapidly rising creeks... will be most prone to flash
flooding.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A Flash Flood Watch means that conditions may develop that lead
to flash flooding. Flash flooding is a very dangerous situation.
Do not cross moving water on roadways... bridges... and low water
crossings.

You should monitor later forecasts and be prepared to take action
should flash flood warnings be issued.
