checking in

Rain will continue tonight, but not as heavy.  The scattered showers and isolated storms will move east and should be finished early Thursday morning.
Tomorrow: Cloudy with afternoon showers; breezy. Wind: N 10-20; gusty. High: 51.
The Flash Flood Watch is now in effect through late tonight. 

* A significant and higher-impact flooding threat continues through this evening due to continued rounds of thunderstorms. The last round of thunderstorms is forecast to move through later today, ending from west to east this evening. The primary threat of flash flooding will end tonight, but river flooding will continue well beyond tonight. 

* Over the past couple of days, there have been numerous water rescues, stranded vehicles, closed and impassable roads (including sections of the Kansas Turnpike), and water entering homes and basements. Any additional rainfall through this evening could cause more flash flooding. The greatest flash flood threat through tonight looks to be along and east of the Kansas Turnpike.

Current river readings as of 5:40pm, Whitewater river is at 27.93, an increase of .32, and the Walnut is at 27.80, a decrease of .01.
