Episode Narrative Moist, tropical air remained in place over Oklahoma, with scattered showers and thunderstorms remaining a daily afternoon occurrence. A weak boundary stalled close to I-44 by early afternoon. The highest concentration of precipitation occurred near and southeast of this boundary, with intense rainfall rates of over two inches per hour reported at many locations. One location that received some of the heavier rainfall was south Oklahoma City. For the 2nd time in three days, a band of heavy rainfall set up over the southern portion of Oklahoma, causing a localized area of flash flooding. The rain lasted for 2 to 3 hours, and as much as 7 inches of rain was reported. Most of the roadways were quickly flooded. Creeks in the area flooded, flooding several homes with a few feet of water. The rainfall intensity and coverage decreased with the loss of daytime heating.
Event Narrative Flooding was reported along North Rockwell Avenue between NW 24th and 22nd Streets. Additional flooding was reported along the 800 block of East Fox Lane and near the Bradford housing addition. Several roads had at least two to three feet of water over top of them.
