Flash Flood Watch For Friday Through Saturday

Adjust Comment Print

A flash flood warning issued for parts of the Kansas City metro area is in effect until 1:45 a.m. Thursday. This system will have the potential to bring 3 inches or more of rain to the region through Saturday afternoon.

Scattered showers and thunderstorms will develop on and off throughout the day. The rain will be heavy at times through the evening and continue into Saturday morning. Often during heavy rainfall, water pools quickly on a roadway surface.

"Widespread rain totals of 1-2" likely tonight with isolated higher totals possible.

Saturday: Winds will pick up to almost 20 miles per hour, with rain accumulating between a half and three-quarters of an inch. At this point I really think we would need to see storms training over the same area to cause flash flooding today, seeing storms are not slow movers.

Dallas Cowboy Lucky Whitehead wanted by Prince William police
Basically, this is either a bad case of mistaken identity or Whitehead has misled his agent about his whereabouts on June 22. With league punishment yet to be handed down, this won't be the last of the Cowboys' off-field antics we hear about...

The area will begin to dry up later Saturday and Sunday. Showers and thunderstorms most likely after 9 p.m., with 2 to 3 inches of rain expected. Lows will be around 70 degrees with a north/northeast wind.

Next week will feature low humidity values and mostly sunny conditions.

Storm chances will shift farther west for Friday with less storm action on Saturday.
