Extended Heavy Rain Threat in the Great Plains

Let's begin with how much rain has already fallen. Here is the 24-hour rainfall ending at 7am.
As much as four inches of rain fell in south central Kansas (southwest of Wichita). Unfortunately, that is just the beginning.

Here is the NWS's 7-day rainfall forecast for the region, which is pretty close to my thinking.
While I might scoot everything in this forecast about 30 miles to the northwest, it is close enough. The takeaway is there is the potential for significant flooding to develop over the next few days to one week.

I will keep blogging about this as the storms generate.
