The National Weather Service in Springfield has issued a
* Flash Flood Watch for portions of southeast Kansas and
Missouri, including the following areas, in southeast Kansas,
Bourbon, Cherokee, and Crawford. In Missouri, Barry, Barton,
Benton, Camden, Cedar, Christian, Dade, Dallas, Dent, Douglas,
Greene, Hickory, Howell, Jasper, Laclede, Lawrence, Maries,
McDonald, Miller, Morgan, Newton, Oregon, Ozark, Phelps, Polk,
Pulaski, Shannon, St. Clair, Stone, Taney, Texas, Vernon,
Webster, and Wright.
* From Friday evening through Sunday evening
* Periods of thunderstorms producing heavy rainfall will occur
from Friday night through Sunday. Storm total rainfall amounts
from 3 to 6 inches are expected, with localized amounts of 8
inches or more likely. It is still unclear where the heaviest
rainfall will occur.
* With soils already saturated as well as creeks, streams, and
rivers running high, the potential for widespread and
significant flooding is becoming increasingly likely for
portions of the Missouri Ozarks. Flooding of some creeks,
rivers, and low water crossings could last for several days
after the rain ends.
Some main stem rivers that will experience significant rises
and potential flooding include the Elk, Spring, James, Big
Piney, Gasconade, Jacks Fork, Current, Eleven Point, Osage,
and Marmaton.
A Flash Flood Watch means that conditions may develop that lead
to flash flooding. Flash flooding is a VERY DANGEROUS SITUATION.
You should monitor later forecasts and be prepared to take action
should Flash Flood Warnings be issued.
