Flash Flood Watch
Issued: 3:34 PM CDT May. 22, 2019 – National Weather Service

... Flash Flood Watch remains in effect from 7 PM CDT this evening
through Thursday morning...

The Flash Flood Watch continues for

* portions of south central Kansas and southeast Kansas,
including the following areas, in south central Kansas, Butler
and Cowley. In southeast Kansas, Allen, Chautauqua, Elk,
Greenwood, Labette, Montgomery, Neosho, Wilson, and Woodson.

* From 7 PM CDT this evening through Thursday morning.

* Thunderstorms will develop over southeast Kansas and become
more numerous for tonight. The thunderstorms could begin to
back build to the west, and then train over the same areas
along a stalled out low level boundary tonight. With grounds
already soaked, this added rainfall will cause flash flooding
to occur quickly over parts of the watch area.

* Widespread 1 to 3 inches of rainfall is expected, however a
narrow band of 3 to 5 inches or higher is possible especially
for the locations that experience training storms. This could
create very significant flooding and a possible flash flood
emergency situation.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A Flash Flood Watch means that conditions may develop that lead
to flash flooding. Flash flooding is a very dangerous situation.
Remember to turn around, don't drown. You should monitor later
forecasts and be prepared to take action should flash flood
warnings be issued.
