With another rainy day in Iowa, about one-third of the state is now under a Flash Flood Watch. Some 30 counties across eastern, central and southern Iowa are included. Meteorologist Roger Valhollek, at the National Weather Service, says a large storm system covers much of the nation’s midsection.
A lot of moisture is coming up into Iowa from the south with the potential for heavy rainfall this afternoon and Valhollek says there’s the possibility of flash-flooding in southern Iowa tonight. He says the system producing the heavy rain should pull out by sometime early tomorrow.
The storm system that’s moving into Iowa from Texas and Oklahoma is bringing the potential for 2-to3 inches of rain in parts of southern Iowa tonight. Iowans should be in for some drier, warmer weather for the weekend with sunnier skies expected statewide and highs in the 60s to low 70s.
