Northwest Iowa — The National Weather Service has issued a Flood Watch for the KIWA listening area, beginning at 7:00 Wednesday evening.
The National Weather Service says Thunderstorms are expected to develop Wednesday evening and continue through Thursday afternoon, with the potential to produce high rainfall rates, and rapid accumulation of rainfall in a short period of time.
The National Weather Service says total rainfall accumulations of 1 to 3 inches will be possible by Thursday morning, with localized rainfall amounts above 3 inches possible. This rainfall on top of saturated grounds will lead to a heightened risk of flash flooding as well as river flooding.
The watch area includes a large part of northwest Iowa, including Clay, Dickinson, Lyon, O’Brien, Osceola, and Sioux counties, as well as adjacent areas of Minnesota and South Dakota.
This Flood Watch will be in effect from 7:00 Wednesday evening through Thursday afternoon.
