Spotty heavy rainfall led the National Weather Service to issue a flood warning south of Emporia on Thursday, although no actual flooding was reported.


The Weather Service issued a flood warning for the north half of Greenwood County, including Madison, Thrall, Hamilton and Eureka City Lake, after a nearly-stationary cluster dropped an estimated 3-5 inches of rain.

Moderate to occasionally heavy rain was widely scattered to isolated across the area, with other storms mainly staying north of US Highway 56 or east of Kansas Highway 99. Rain totals varied widely, with close to an inch a mile south of Allen and 0.25 inches just north of the town.

More storms are possible Friday with isolated coverage expected. An extended period of rain chances with the prospect of more widespread rainfall picks up early next week.
