Flash Flood Watch
Including the cities of Cedar Rapids, Iowa City, Tipton,
Muscatine, Washington, Wapello, and Aledo
208 PM CDT Thu Jun 21 2018


The National Weather Service in Quad Cities has expanded the

* Flash Flood Watch to include portions of northwest Illinois
and Iowa, including the following areas, in northwest
Illinois, Mercer. In Iowa, Cedar, Johnson, Linn, Louisa,
Muscatine, and Washington.

* Through Friday morning

* Slow moving showers and thunderstorms and multiple rounds of
storms may produce heavy rain over near saturated ground. Peak
rainfall rates may reach 1 to 2 inches per hour. Total rain
amounts will vary considerably, but an additional 2 to 4 inches
are possible in the heaviest bands, with isolated higher amounts
not out of the question.

* Those near smaller rivers, streams, and low-lying areas should
be prepared for dangerous flash flooding and more prolonged
high water levels. Urban flooding is also a threat. Remember
never to drive through flooded roadways. There were many
reports of stalled vehicles in the Quad Cities on Wednesday
from people attempting to cross through flood waters.


A Flash Flood Watch means that flash flooding is possible.
Monitor forecasts and take action if flash flood warnings are
issued or flash flooding develops.
