Special Statement

Statement as of 2:46 PM CDT on September 22, 2017

Expires 8:00 AM EDT on September 23, 2017


... Heavy rain expected to develop over the weekend and early next
week along with a risk of flooding...

An upper level low pressure trough will slowly move into the
southwest this weekend into early next week, pulling considerable
moisture into the Southern Plains, and setting the stage for
periods of moderate to heavy rain and potential flooding.

A risk for flooding may develop as early as tonight near the New
Mexico border as thunderstorms firing over eastern New Mexico move
nearly due north close to the state line. Repeat storms over the
same location could amount to an inch or two of rainfall and cause
minor flooding.

The threat for flooding will increase and gradually expand over
the entire area during the weekend - and persist into early next
week.

Rainfall totals of several inches or more will be possible while
local rain amounts in excess of five inches could lead to flash
flooding. Heaviest rain totals are most likely across portions of
the rolling plains though flooding will be a concern area-wide.

Pay attention around low-lying areas that typically flood and stay
aware of low water crossings over roads. Stay tuned to additional
forecast updates and to rain rates and storm trends in your area.
