...FLASH FLOOD WATCH REMAINS IN EFFECT FROM 7 PM CDT THIS EVENING
THROUGH SUNDAY 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,
  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 7 PM CDT this evening through Sunday evening

* Periods of thunderstorms producing heavy rainfall will occur
  from tonight through Sunday. Widespread event rainfall amounts
  from 4 to 6 inches are expected, with localized amounts of 8
  inches or more possible. 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 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. Some river points may reach moderate or major flood
stage.

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.
