CSW Weather: NWS- "Excessive" Rainfalls Likely in Metro- MetroRegion Kansas City
Rain has begun over most of Metro Kansas City as well as the southern 1/2 of the MetroRegion- and this trend will continue off and on until at least midday Wednesday.
In addition- the NWS' Hydro Prediction Center (HPC) has Metro- as well as a large part of the northern & northeastern MetroRegion outlooked for possible excessive rainfall for about the next 24 hours.
Storm totals from this prolonged event- which should be known as our drought-buster- could well exceed 2-inches with more than 3-inches quite possible in some areas.
There is also a "slight" risk of possible severe thunderstorms over about the southern half of the Kansas City MetroRegion through Tuesday night..
Any flooding issues will be noted here at CSW as they occur....
