A rather long band of storms stretches south-southwest to north-northeast from northern Oklahoma now into northern Iowa. Viewing NWS-EAX/Pleasant Hill radar on the MetroRegion focus-many of the storms have remained virtually stationary- or have redeveloped over the same areas.
As shown on the next image of radar-indicated rainfall- areas in northern Wabaunsee County KS along I-70 west of Topeka have received more than 6 inches of rain already this morning- with additional storms upstream for a hundred miles. Much of this water will be flowing into Mud Creek then the nearby Kansas River..
Other areas in Kansas with heavy rains so far are Brown county- on the Delaware River drainage and Lyon county- on the Neosho River drainage systems.
Some of those areas indicate more than 4-inch amounts thus far.
The heaviest and repeat rains should stay in the north through west areas of the K.C. Metro through at least early afternoon.
