TULSA, Okla. (AP) - A flash flood warning is in effect for parts of eastern Oklahoma and western Arkansas as heavy rain continues to fall over the area.

The National Weather Service in Tulsa says 3 to 4 inches of rain has already fallen and several roads are impassable due to high water. Additional rainfall amounts of 1 to 2 inches are likely. The flash flood warning will remain in effect until Tuesday afternoon.

In Oklahoma, the warning covers all or parts of Delaware, Cherokee, Muskogee, Sequoyah, Adair and McIntosh counties. In Arkansas, Carroll, Benton, Madison and Washington counties are included.

Meanwhile, a flash flood watch remains in effect in much of central and southern Oklahoma as a slow moving storm front moves over the region. Rounds of heavy rain are expected through Wednesday.
