Flash Flood Watch
Statement as of 6:34 AM CDT on August 27, 2014

...Flash Flood Watch remains in effect through Thursday morning...

The Flash Flood Watch continues for

* portions of central Nebraska...east central Nebraska and south central Nebraska...including the following areas...in central Nebraska...Greeley...Howard...Merrick...Nance...Sherman and valley. In east central Nebraska...Polk and York. In south central Nebraska...Adams...Clay...Hall and Hamilton.

* Through Thursday morning

* although most of the watch area did not receive significant rainfall this morning...additional rounds of showers and thunderstorms are expected during the next 24 hours...especially this evening into tonight.

* Given that some storms could produce heavy rain in excess of 1 to 2 inches in a short time falling on already saturated ground...the threat for localized flash flooding continues... especially in low-lying areas and along streams. That being said...rainfall amounts will likely vary considerably within the watch area...and not all places will actually observe flooding.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A Flash Flood Watch means that conditions may develop that lead to flash flooding. Flash flooding is a very dangerous situation.

You should monitor later forecasts and be prepared to take action should flash flood warnings be issued.
