...FLASH FLOOD WATCH IN EFFECT FROM THIS AFTERNOON THROUGH

WEDNESDAY MORNING...

The National Weather Service in Des Moines has issued a

* Flash Flood Watch for portions of central Iowa, north central
Iowa, and northeast Iowa, including the following areas, in
central Iowa, Boone, Dallas, Grundy, Hamilton, Hardin, Jasper,
Marshall, Polk, Poweshiek, Story, and Tama. In north central
Iowa, Butler, Cerro Gordo, Franklin, Hancock, Winnebago,
Worth, and Wright. In northeast Iowa, Black Hawk and Bremer.

* From this afternoon through Wednesday morning

* Rainfall amounts of 2 to 3 inches with locally higher amounts to
4 inches north of Highway 20 will be possible. This will result
in localized flash flooding across the watch area. Rainfall
rates may exceed 2 inches per hour at times.

* Recent rains combined with more heavy rainfall will combine to
create a higher threat for flash flooding across the region.
Most of the area is already saturated from recent rainfall.

...Heavy Rain Today And Tonight...Elevated Flooding Risk...

Heavy rain is likely later today through tonight as another round
of showers and thunderstorms move through the area. The bulk of
the heavy rain is expected to fall from southeast Minnesota into
northwest Wisconsin. Amounts from 2 to 6 inches are anticipated,
with locally higher possible. Localized flooding should be
planned for with the potential for more widespread flooding to
develop. Rapid rises on rivers and creeks and other drainage areas
will also occur, leading to an additional flooding threat.

Southeast of La Crosse amounts are expected to be less, but
northeast Iowa and southwest Wisconsin have already experience
several inches of rain over the past week. Any additional rainfall
will likely result in more flooding - possibly life threatening.

This is a potentially dangerous situation, especially in those
locations that are currently, or have recently had heavy rain and
flooding. The time to prepare is now. Do not wait until heavy rain
or flooding is occurring.
