Flood Watch 9/6

Iowa Flood Watch

Several rounds of showers and thunderstorms will move across the area through Wednesday night. These storms will produce widespread rainfall totals of 2 to 3 inches. Where the storms track over the same locations, localized amounts in excess of 6 inches will be possible. With soils already moist from August rainfall, flooding will be possible.

If you live by a river or stream, closely monitor weather conditions and be prepared to move to higher ground if water levels begin to rise.

Two to three inches of rain are expected for many areas through Wednesday night. Localized amounts in excess of 6 inches will be possible where storms track over the same locations. A flood watch means there is a potential for flooding based on current forecasts.
