Leavenworth County was hit with more rain Tuesday, resulting in a flash flood warning for a portion of the county.

The flash flood warning was issued Tuesday afternoon for south central Leavenworth County. The warning was scheduled to remain in effect into Tuesday evening, according to the National Weather Service.

The remainder of the county remained under a flash flood watch.

Kim Buchanan, deputy director of Leavenworth County Emergency Management, said southern Leavenworth County had already received two inches of rain by Tuesday afternoon. And there was the potential for an additional one to two inches of rain Tuesday evening.

Stranger Creek appeared to be on the rise Tuesday in Leavenworth County. But as of 4:30 p.m., NWS forecasts were not predicting the creek would flood. However, a forecast predicted the creek would come close to reaching its flood stage near Tonganoxie.

The Missouri River, which already was in what is known as its action stage, also was on the rise Tuesday in the Leavenworth area. But a NWS forecast was predicting the river will crest early Thursday morning at a depth of 18.8 feet without reaching its minor flood stage of 20 feet.

A forecast for the city of Leavenworth shows additional chances of showers and thunderstorms this afternoon, during the overnight hours and Thursday morning.

The forecast also shows chances of more showers early next week.
