Watches & Warnings

Flash Flood Watch
Issued: 3:58 PM CDT Aug. 25, 2016 – National Weather Service

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

The National Weather Service in Wichita has issued a

* Flash Flood Watch for portions of central Kansas... south
central Kansas and southeast Kansas... including the following
areas... in central Kansas... Chase... Marion and McPherson. In
south central Kansas... Butler... Cowley... Harper... Harvey...
Kingman... Reno... Sedgwick and Sumner. In southeast Kansas...

boundary over much of the central and south central Kansas.
Rainfall rates of 1 to 3 inches per hour are possible. This high

to flash flooding. Flash flooding is a very dangerous situation.
Remember to turn around... don't drown.

should flash flood warnings be issued.
