Flash flood threat for Southern Plains, Midwest as hot weather stretches through Texas

Excessive heat warnings and advisories stretch from Texas to the Southern Mississippi River Valley

A stalled front will bring the risk of heavy rain and flooding Tuesday as hot weather builds in areas cleaning up from Hurricane Laura.

Additional heavy rain from the Southern Plains to the Midwest will lead to the threat of flash floods through Wednesday due to the stalled front.

Flash flood warnings and watches are in effect across Oklahoma, northeast Texas and into Arkansas.
