Watches & Warnings

Flash Flood Watch, Areal Flood Advisory
Issued: 8:47 PM CDT Apr. 27, 2017 – National Weather Service

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

The Flash Flood Watch continues for

* portions of southeastern 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... although at this time the most probable
axis of highest precipitation amounts will be along and south
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.

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.
