MASON CITY, Iowa - As the snow melts, we run into the risk of flooding.

Minor flooding is expected in parts of our area, including along the Winnebago River in Mason City.

Right now, according to the U.S. Geological Service, the river is a little under 6 feet, about 4 feet under flood stage, but water levels are expected to rise.

Meteorologists area also issuing a Flood Warning along the Cedar River in Black Hawk County near Waterloo, as the water is expected to crest 18 inches above flood stage by next Tuesday.

The Zumbro River in Rochester, however, is not expected to flood. Water levels are sitting more than 10 feet below the flood stage.
