NWS Flash Flood Warning for Jackson County MO- But No Serious Problems Yet

Cellphones across the county went off within the past 10 minutes for this warning- but the heaviest rains are now over eastern JaCoMO..

There have been rainfalls of slightly more than 4-inches reported near Knobtown in SE KC-MO- but a check of area stream and river gauges show all major waterways well within their banks.

The previous weeks of mostly rain-free weather allowed the ground to soak up much of the rain- which fortunately didn't come down all at once but in waves several hours apart.

More activity will develop/move into the Metro through the next 6 hours or so- but amounts should remain below 2-inches and I don't anticipate any serious flash flooding issues in the Metro through the end of this event later today.
