Advisory

Flash Flood Watch until 07:00AM Sunday

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, Cedar, Christian, Dade, Dallas, Greene, Jasper, Laclede, Lawrence, McDonald, Newton, Polk, Stone, Vernon, Webster, and Wright.

* Until 7 AM CDT Sunday

* Showers and thunderstorms are expected to affect the area late this evening through tonight. The air mass is conducive for heavy rain, which may cause flash flooding where storms repeatedly move over the same areas. There is uncertainty with exactly where the heaviest rain will fall, but generally expect 1 to 3 inches of rain, with locally higher amounts, over portions of the area covered by the watch.

* Given the moist soil conditions from previous rains this month, rapid onset flash flooding will be likely.

* AFFECTED AREAS: NEWTON ... DALLAS ... BOURBON ... LACLEDE ... MCDONALD ... JASPER ... LAWRENCE ... VERNON ... CHRISTIAN ... WEBSTER ... CRAWFORD ... DADE ... WRIGHT ... BARRY ... BARTON ... STONE ... POLK ... CHEROKEE ... CEDAR ... GREENE

Instructions:

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.
