CSW WEATHER: NWS Says "High Risk" For Excessive Rainfall in Kansas City MetroRegion

he Hydrological Prediction Center (HPC) of the National Weather Service (NWS) has the southern portions of Metro Kansas City and adjacent areas south through west in a "high risk" of excessive rainfalls later today into tonight.

Rainfall totals have varied widely throughout the MetroRegion with the heaviest rains generally west through north of the Metro.

However- even the lesser amounts have re-saturated the ground that had a chance to dry out some last week- and the NWS-HPC excessive rain forecast notes an "enhanced" or higher risk of flash flooding should any areas of heavy rain move over an area.

The current weather radar doesn't show any concentrated areas of heavy rain yet threatening the Metro- and- except during initial precipitation development- very little or no severe weather is expected with any activity.
