This hazardous weather outlook is for portions of Central Kansas,
South Central Kansas and Southeast Kansas.

.DAY ONE...Tonight

Recent heavy rainfall has resulted in rises and some flooding on
a few rivers and creeks in central and southeast Kansas. Please
refer to the flood warnings and statements for details.

Roadways still have water over them in southern Saline and McPherson
counties. Please see the latest flood warning for more information.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Monday through Saturday

Widespread heavy rainfall is expected Monday afternoon through
midday on Tuesday. Rainfall amounts in excess of 3 inches are
likely with locally higher amounts possible. The expected heavy
rainfall will result in significant rises on area rivers and creeks
with some likely to exceed flood stage. Locally intense rainfall may
also lead to flash flooding of rural and urban areas.

Strong to severe thunderstorms will also be possible Monday
afternoon through early Tuesday morning, capable of large hail and
damaging winds. The greatest risk for severe storms may occur over
south central and southeast Kansas, Monday evening and Monday
night, if a warm front can lift north into the area. If so,
supercell storms may be capable of very large hail and tornadoes.

Periodic chances for thunderstorms will continue from Wednesday
evening through Saturday. Strong to severe storms will be possible
along with locally heavy rainfall. Some residual flooding may also
linger from heavy rainfall earlier in the week.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...

Spotter activation is not anticipated tonight.
