LOW risk of river flooding through Tuesday 12z.

A storm complex developed Sunday afternoon in central Kansas and slowly moved eastward through this morning producing heavy rains through eastern Kansas. Widespread amounts of one inch or greater extended from north of Dodge City though Emporia into southwest Missouri. Numerous locations reports 3 to 5 plus inches of rain.

This system is forecast to continue east into Missouri through this afternoon. Later this evening and overnight, additional storms are forecast to form in southeast Kansas and move into northeast Oklahoma through Tuesday morning. Basin-averaged totals of 2.5 inches are forecast in the Oklahoma-Kansas-Missouri borders.

The rainfall that fell through this morning produced some minro to moderate within-bank rises on streams where the heaviest precipitation occurred. No flooding is currently forecast, however Cow Creek near Lyons KS is expected to crest within a foot of flood stage.

Because the rain expected today is forecast to be east of where the rains fell earlier, only additional with-in bank rises are forecast in southeast Kansas and southwest Missouri.
