Flash Flood Watch
Issued: 2:48 AM CDT Apr. 28, 2017 – National Weather Service

... Flash Flood Watch remains in effect from this evening through
Sunday evening...

The Flash Flood Watch continues 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 this evening through Sunday evening.

* Periods of thunderstorms producing heavy rainfall will occur
from tonight through Sunday. Storm total rainfall amounts from 4
to 6 inches are expected, with localized amounts of 8 inches or
more likely. It is still unclear where the heaviest rainfall
will occur... although at this time the most probable axis of
highest precipitation amounts will be along and perhaps just
north of the Interstate 44 corridor.

* 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. Areas that don't normally flood could
flood in this event.

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. Some river points may reach moderate or major flood
stage.

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.
