...Flood Impacts Possible through Early Next Week... A potent storm system will combine with strong lift and anomalous moisture to produce a widespread rain event Sunday through Monday. At this time, we expect liquid equivalent amounts of one to two inches for much of central, southern, and eastern Kansas. Max precipitation amounts could approach 2 to 2.50". Rainfall amounts of this magnitude are less common this time of year, and could potentially push much of the area into a top-10 to top-15 wettest start to a year. Cold or frozen ground combined with anomalous rainfall amounts and recent precipitation events could lead to some minor and nuisance level flooding impacts, including increased areas of standing water in fields and low-lying areas, some ponding of water in urban areas, and the possibility of difficult travel on dirt roads. Rises on creeks, streams, and rivers are possible as well. If the higher end amounts closer to two inches occur, a few rivers could near, or exceed, flood stage. If the threat of more impactful or widespread flooding increases, a Flood Watch may be necessary. Stay tuned for updates through this weekend.
