Vehicles travel through standing water on a street in Glendale, Wis., Tuesday, Feb. 20, 2018. A storm system stretched from Texas to the Great Lakes states and forced some schools to close. The National Weather Service issued winter weather advisories for parts of Oklahoma, Kansas, North Dakota, Missouri, Iowa, Minnesota and Wisconsin. Flood warnings were in effect in Illinois, Indiana and Michigan with flood watches in Texas and Arkansas.

The National Weather Service has issued a flood watch until late tonight for several counties including Butler. 

Scattered to numerous showers and isolated storms will affect portions of central, south-central, and eastern Kansas into the early afternoon. Gusty winds and locally heavy rainfall, which may result in minor lowland flooding, are the main threats.

The flood watch will remain in effect until Friday at 4 a.m.
