Watches & Warnings

Flash Flood Watch
Issued: 5:20 PM CDT Aug. 23, 2019 – National Weather Service

... Flash Flood Watch remains in effect through Saturday morning...

The Flash Flood Watch continues for

* portions of central Kansas and west central Kansas... including
the following in central ... Kansas... Ellis and rush. In west
central Kansas... Lane... Ness... Scott and Trego.

* Through Saturday morning

* another round of thunderstorms is expected tonight. Rainfall
amounts of 1 to 2 inches will be common, with locally higher
amounts. The additional rainfall will fall on soils saturated
by prior rains over the previous week, leading to rapid and
increased runoff.

* Pay attention to water levels near bodies of water, and in low
lying areas. If thunderstorms approach, seek higher ground. If
outdoors enjoying Summer activities, flooding becomes even
more dangerous. Ensure you have a way to receive flash flood
warnings tonight. Flowing water is particularly dangerous at
night, when low visibility makes it very difficult to
determine how deep the water is, or how fast it is moving.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

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.
