Watches & Warnings

Flash Flood Watch
Issued: 3:37 AM CDT Jul. 26, 2017 – National Weather Service

... Flash Flood Watch in effect from 1 PM CDT this afternoon
through late tonight...

The National Weather Service in Des Moines has issued a

* Flash Flood Watch for portions of central Iowa, south central
Iowa, southeast Iowa, southwest Iowa, and west central Iowa,
including the following areas, in central Iowa, Dallas,
Jasper, Polk, and Poweshiek. In south central Iowa, Appanoose,
Clarke, Decatur, Lucas, Madison, Mahaska, Marion, Monroe,
Ringgold, Union, Warren, and Wayne. In southeast Iowa, Davis
and Wapello. In southwest Iowa, Adair, Adams, Cass, and
Taylor. In west central Iowa, Guthrie.

* From 1 PM CDT this afternoon through late tonight

* ample moisture will stream into the state today ahead of an
approaching system. Thunderstorms are expected with this system
today into tonight as it passes through central Iowa. Given the
available moisture, very heavy rainfall is expected with the
storms as they pass through the state with rainfall rates of 2-3
inches per hour. In addition, the training of storms will also
be possible where a series of storms pass over the same
location. Although conditions are still relatively dry in the
watch area, the intense rainfall rates may lead to flash
flooding, especially in urban areas and low lying areas.

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.
