SPRINGFIELD, Mo. -- The Flash Flood Watch continues from 1pm Wednesday to 1pm Thursday for portions of southeast Kansas and Missouri.

Several additional rounds of moderate to heavy rainfall will occur across southeastern Kansas and the Missouri Ozarks Wednesday and Thursday.  With the ground already saturated from
heavy rain that fell Tuesday morning, Flash Flooding will be possible where additional heavy rain occurs.

After a widespread one to three inches of rain early Tuesday morning, several additional rounds of moderate to at times heavy rain today and Thursday are expected to result in a flood
threat across southeastern Kansas and the Missouri Ozarks. Many locations will receive an additional two inches of rain...with some localized amounts in excess of three inches possible.

The most widespread and heaviest rain is expected to occur from late Wednesday afternoon and evening...through mid day on Thursday. If later forecasts indicate that heavy rain will develop
earlier than expected...then the start time of this flash flood watch could be moved up if necessary.

Low lying areas...low water crossings...and other flood prone locations will be especially susceptible to flooding over the next few days. Most flood deaths occur in automobiles. Never
drive your car or truck through a flooded roadway.  Find an alternate route instead. Remember...turn around...don`t drown.
