The National Weather Service in Omaha/Valley has expanded the

* Flood Watch to include portions of west central Iowa and 
Nebraska, including the following areas, in west central Iowa, 
Monona. In Nebraska, Burt, Cuming, and Thurston. 

* Through late tonight

* Occasional rounds of showers and thunderstorms with heavy rain
are expected through tonight. Additional amounts of up to 2
inches are possible, which would put storm total rains from
Thursday through tonight in the 2 to 6 inch range. Flooding of 
low-lying areas, urban areas and eventually rivers and streams 
could result. 


A Flood Watch means there is a potential for flooding based on
current forecasts.

You should monitor later forecasts and be alert for possible
Flood Warnings. Those living in areas prone to flooding should be
prepared to take action should flooding develop.
