Significant Flooding, Severe Weather Possible


Significant flash and river flooding are possible through the end of the week, according to the National Weather Service. Rainfall totals of between 1 and 3 inches are expected over the next 24 hours, with locally higher amounts possible. Soils are already saturated from recent rains, making low-lying areas much more flood prone.

Severe thunderstorms accompanied by strong winds and damaging hail are also possible into the overnight hours. The National Weather Service is tracking an intense thunderstorm complex, known as a derecho, which could span a 1,000 mile swath across the Plains and Midwestern states.
