Sunday Storms Brought Heavy Rainfall to Metro K.C.

Rainfall amounts across the Metro from Sunday's storms totaled from just under an inch to as much as two and a half inches.

According to the Overland Park Stormwatch site (which has a new look)- the heaviest totals were measured from western JoCo KS into southern Platte and Clay counties in Missouri.

A measured maximum of 2.4 inches fell near Chouteau Trafficway and I-35 along the Rock Creek basin in Kansas City North.

There were a few reports of  high water Sunday- but no major flash flooding issues were reported in the Metro.

Some streams and rivers are in flood Monday morning- generally northeast to southeast of Metro Kansas City with some roads closed in JoCo MO..

The Missouri River will experience mostly minor flooding east of K.C. to it's confluence with the Mississippi River in St. Louis.
