Rains soaked the Kansas City area Sunday, causing some minor flooding along rivers and streams.
The storm dumped nearly 3 inches of rain in southern Johnson County for the 24-hour period ending at 6 p.m. Parts of Kansas City north of the Missouri River saw nearly 2 inches of rain for that time period.
An additional 1/4 to 1 inch of rain was expected overnight as light rain was likely to continue across the region.
The National Weather Service reported that some minor river flooding had started as of 3:30 p.m. While the rivers and streams started to flood, no major impacts were anticipated.
Additional river flooding could happen over the next few days as runoff from rainfall upstream flows through.
