MetroRegion Kansas City Flood Update


S
cattered heavy rains continue over the Central States and Kansas City MetroRegion- gradually worsening flood conditions on the middle Missouri River upstream of Kansas City.


The latest hydrologic conditions- as shown in this recent image from the NWS-Kansas City/Pleasant Hill office shows moderate flooding on the Missouri as far south as Atchison KS today.

Currently- showers and thunderstorms are occurring over parts of south through north-central Kansas.

This activity is GENERALLY moving north-northeast- but some storm activity could very well develop eastward in the heat of the day into Metro Kansas City- adding to some locations' rainfall totals so far the June 2010 of a foot or more of rainfall.

No break in this warm to hot and humid weather pattern is seen yet- with another low pressure trough re-organizing in the western states next week- gradually re-loading this weather pattern of summer storms.

The good news is that aside from the torrential rainfalls- only isolated- if any- severe weather is expected to occur.
