Flash flood watch issued for Wyandotte County

Wyandotte County is under a flash flood watch from midnight today through 7 a.m. Saturday, Aug. 3, according to the National Weather Service.

Showers and thunderstorms are expected to redevelop tonight into Thursday morning across portions of eastern Kansas, the weather service said.

Additional rounds of precipitation are expected over the next several days through early Sautrday morning, according to the weather service.

The rainfall rate and multiple rounds of rain could lead to the potential for flash flooding, the weather service said.

Rainfall totals of 2 to 4 inches are possible by Saturday morning, the weather service said. Areas near rivers, creeks and streams could become flooded during and after heavy rainfall.

Motorists are advised to be very careful if driving at night as flood waters are hard to see, according to the weather service.
