  Missouri, including the following areas, in southeast Kansas,
  Cherokee and Crawford. In southwest Missouri, Barry, Barton,
  Christian, Dade, Greene, Jasper, Lawrence, McDonald, Newton,

  will develop late Thursday night and continue through Friday and
  Friday night. Rain will gradually taper off Saturday. Storm
  total rainfall amounts will likely range from two to four inches
  with locally higher amounts up to five inches possible.

  Flooding may also materialize on main stem rivers including the
  Elk, James and Spring river basins.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

A Flood Watch means there is a potential for flooding based on
current forecasts.

You should monitor later forecasts and be alert for possible
Flood Warnings. Those living in areas prone to flooding should be
prepared to take action should flooding develop.
