... Flash Flood Watch remains in effect through Saturday morning...
The Flash Flood Watch continues for
* portions of central Kansas... south central Kansas and
southeast Kansas... including the following areas... in central
Kansas... Chase and Marion. In south central Kansas... Butler...
Cowley... Harper... Harvey... Kingman... Reno... Sedgwick and
Sumner. In southeast Kansas... Allen... Chautauqua... Elk...

* Through Saturday morning.
* A few more rounds of showers and thunderstorms will affect the
region through Friday night. Given the already saturated
grounds... any additional rainfall will aggravate existing
flooding... or result in renewed flooding. Excessive runoff may
also lead to rapid rises on rivers and streams.
* Those with outdoor plans along creeks and rivers need to
monitor the weather situation closely for the next couple of
A Flash Flood Watch means that conditions may develop that lead
to flash flooding. Flash flooding is a very dangerous situation.
Remember to turn around... don't drown.
You should monitor later forecasts and be prepared to take action
should flash flood warnings be issued.

Area forecast discussion National Weather Service Wichita Kansas 651 PM CDT Thursday may 28 2015 ..updated for 00z aviation discussion... Synopsis... issued at 240 PM CDT Thursday may 28 2015 Regional 88d's shows a pronounced mesoscale convective vortex tracking over extreme southeast Kansas/SW MO with another circulation over eastern Nebraska. Meanwhile...a more synoptic impulse is lifting over northern nm/southern Colorado. At the surface...outflow from overnight convection pushed into the Texas Panhandle/southern OK with return flow already allowing for recovery across the High Plains. && Short term...(this evening through saturday) issued at 240 PM CDT Thursday may 28 2015 Rainfall will come to an end over southeast Kansas shortly as the mesoscale convective vortex continues to lift northeast. Storms are already starting to develop out over far eastern Colorado/western Kansas. This activity will work east overnight and should move into the western fringes of the forecast area around 06z. Fairly confident that the convection will not be as widespread as last night and that there maybe two main areas of convection. One which has already developed over the Texas Panhandle and will slowly slide east overnight. The other more widespread area maybe over north central Kansas which will be closer to the better upper dynamics and middle level moisture transport. Obviously with grounds very saturated...flooding will be a threat with any storms overnight. Attention will then turn to a cold front that is set to sweep through the forecast area on Friday. The GFS is quite a bit faster with this front compared to the NAM with the GFS getting some support from the European model (ecmwf). With the cooler middle level temperatures remaining and associated limited capping...confidence is high that storms will develop along the front Friday afternoon and continue southeast overnight. This scenario would place the best storm chances Friday along and southeast of the Kansas Turnpike. By Sat morning the bulk of the activity will be southeast of the forecast area with much needed drier air finally pushing into the forecast area with below normal temperatures. Long term...(sunday through thursday) issued at 240 PM CDT Thursday may 28 2015 By Sun afternoon...what is left of the upper wave will be over the Ozark region and will continue tracking slowly southeast as upper ridging finally sets up over The Rockies into the High Plains. This will allow for dry weather to continue through Wednesday. There is then decent model consensus that shortwave energy will track out of the Pacific northwest and eventually across the northern rockies and out into the northern/Central Plains for Wednesday night into Thursday. While some storms can't be ruled out for north central Kansas...the better storm chances look to be north of the forecast area. Should start the work week off with below normal temperatures as they gradually climb to near normal values by middle week. Lawson && Aviation...(for the 00z tafs through 00z Friday evening) issued at 651 PM CDT Thursday may 28 2015 The aviation forecast concerns continue to be the chances for convection overnight and then again during the day Friday. Attempted to time convection through the early overnight hours for western terminals. Convection during the day is possible...but have left thunderstorms in the vicinity out of the day time for now because of the uncertainty. Winds will continue to be southerly throughout the period.
