NORMAN, Okla. (AP) - A severe thunderstorm watch has been issued for seven southern Oklahoma counties where forecasters say there is a chance of severe thunderstorms.

The National Weather Service issued the weather advisory Sunday afternoon for Carter, Comanche, Cotton, Jefferson, Love, Stephens and Tillman counties. The severe thunderstorm watch will expire at midnight.

Forecasters say showers and thunderstorms are expected to move into southwestern Oklahoma late Sunday afternoon. The storms are expected to spread north and eastward into central and southeastern Oklahoma Sunday evening before moving into eastern and southeastern Oklahoma through early Monday morning.

The potential for severe storms will decrease after midnight, but heavy rainfall could lead to flash flooding. Showers and thunderstorms will remain possible Monday with rain chances ending from west to east through the day.
