Overnight Flood Threat in Northeast Kansas and Flint Hills

Here is a radar estimate of rainfall to 9pm.
The area around Manhattan has received around 1.5 inches. 

Rainfall as of 9:08pm shows rain continuing to fall over the area. 

While the exact position is uncertain (could shift 30 or so miles north, south, east or west), multiple models indicate heavy rain, with an additional three inches or more in places, will fall overnight and Saturday morning. 
This has the potential to cause flooding. 

If you are traveling to night, please be cautious in northeast and parts of east central Kansas. Never try to cross flooded areas by foot or by car. 

Addition: The National Weather Service's flash flood outlook (yellow) for the overnight hours till 7am.
They are expanded the area into the Flint Hills north of Highway 400 and into central Kansas.
