The National Weather Service in Springfield has issued a

* Flood Advisory for...
Cherokee County in southeast Kansas...
Jasper County in southwest Missouri...
southern Crawford County in southeast Kansas...

* until 1000 am CDT.

* At 341 am CDT... National Weather Service Doppler radar indicated
heavy rainfall across the advisory area. Doppler radar estimates
indicate that 2 to 3 inches of rainfall has fallen overnight.

* Runoff from this heavy rainfall will cause minor flooding.
Locations in the advisory include... Airport Drive... Alba... Arma...
Asbury... Atlas... Avilla... Baxter Springs... Beulah... Brazilton...
Brooklyn Heights... Carl Junction... Carona... Carterville...
Carthage... Carytown... Cherokee... Chicopee... Columbus... Crestline...

Lawton... Lone Oak... Lowell... Maple Grove... McCune... Melrose...
Mulberry... Neck City... neutral... Oakland Park... Opolis... Oronogo...
Pittsburg... Polk... Purcell... Reeds... Ringo... Riverton... Roseland...
Sarcoxie... Scammon... Sherman... Sherwin... Skidmore... Stippville...
Treece... Waco... Webb City... Weir... West Mineral and Yale. Creeks...
streams and low water crossings will be especially susceptible to
the dangers of flooding.

This advisory includes but is not limited to the following low water
crossings...

North main and Murphy Boulevard in Joplin...
Highway 37 at the Spring River southwest of Avilla...
Highway 7 at little Cherry Creek north of Columbus...
Route jj at Center Creek southeast of Carl Junction...
Route f... 3 miles northeast of Reeds.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A Flood Advisory means river or stream flows are elevated or ponding
of water in urban or other areas is occurring or is imminent.

Most flood deaths occur in automobiles. Never drive your vehicle into
areas where the water covers the roadway. Flood waters are usually
deeper than they appear. Just one foot of flowing water is powerful
enough to sweep vehicles off the Road. When encountering flooded
roads make the smart choice... turn around... dont drown.

Excessive runoff from heavy rainfall will cause elevated levels on
small creeks and streams... and ponding of water on country roads and
farmland along the banks of creeks and streams.

... Flash Flood Watch remains in effect through Wednesday
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... Jasper... Laclede... Lawrence... Maries...
McDonald... Miller... Morgan... Newton... Ozark... Phelps... Polk...
Pulaski... St. Clair... stone... Taney... Texas... Vernon...
Webster and Wright.

* Through Wednesday evening

* today... intermittent showers and a few embedded storms will move
across the area. Pockets of locally heavy rainfall are possible
where heavier showers train... or repeated move across the same
area. Widespread moderate to heavy rainfall will develop across
the region tonight and Wednesday as low pressure moves northeast
along a front that is stalled over the area. Storm total
rainfall amounts between two and four inches are currently
expected across the watch area... with locally higher amounts
possible. The highest rainfall amounts through Wednesday are
currently expected along and northwest of the Interstate 44
corridor.

* Soils are already saturated across the region... and many
creeks... streams and rivers are already running above normal.
This additional rainfall is expected to lead to flash
flooding of streams... flood prone areas... and low water
crossings. Flooding of larger main Stem rivers may also
occur.

Those camping or floating along area streams and rivers should be
alert for rising water levels.

Rivers potentially impacted by flooding include the Osage...
Marmaton... Spring ... Elk... James... and Gasconade.

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.
