TULSA, Okla. (AP) - State weather forecasters say a major flooding event could affect portions of eastern Oklahoma and northwest Arkansas through the weekend.

The National Weather Service says Saturday that widespread rain from four to 11 inches are forecast over the weekend in the area, and those accumulations are capable of flooding rivers and creeks.

Forecasters say there’s a chance for severe storms Saturday, but mainly across east central and southeast Oklahoma and into northwest Arkansas. The forecast says that includes the possibility of isolated tornadoes.

Meanwhile, The Texas and Oklahoma Panhandles are bracing for what National Weather Service forecasters are calling a “historic blizzard.”
