3 to 7 inches of rainfall have occurred over much of northwest
Kansas along and south of Interestate 70. Moderate to heavy rainfall
will continue across much of this area into early tomorrow. All this

to near 8 feet by late tomorrow afternoon. This is still a foot

possible that the river could rise above flood stage.

the latest forecasts for this river, and be prepared for possible.
