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,

Camden, Cedar, Dade, Dallas, Hickory, Jasper, Miller, Morgan,
Newton, Polk, St. Clair, and Vernon.

* From this evening through Thursday morning

* thunderstorms are expected to develop across Oklahoma and
eastern Kansas this evening and spread into western Missouri.
Storms will continue to move across southeastern Kansas and
western Missouri mainly north of Interstate 44 through Thursday
morning. Rainfall amounts across the watch area between one and
two inches are expected with locally higher amounts possible.
This rainfall will fall on already saturated soils, with
residual flooding on going across much the area from heavy rains
over the past two days.

* Low lying areas and areas near rivers, creeks and streams will
likely become flooded. Urban flooding will likely occur,
especially where storms track over the same areas. This
additional rainfall will exacerbate any ongoing flooding.

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.
