A flood watch has been issued for Wyandotte County and surrounding areas from midnight through Thursday evening.
The National Weather Service said several rounds of thunderstorms are expected over the region tonight and Wednesday.
The storms may repeatedly affect these areas, the weather service said, with total rainfall amounts around two inches expected across the region, with locally higher amounts possible.
Heavy rainfall, combined with recent rainfall and snow melt, will likely lead to flooding of creeks, streams, tributaries, low-lying land and other flood-prone areas, the weather service said.
A flood watch means there is a potential for flooding based on current forecasts.
Residents are asked to monitor later forecasts and be alert for possible flood warnings. Those living in areas prone to flooding should be prepared to take action should flooding develop.
The current river charts show the rivers are well below flood stage.
