...The Flood Watch continues for the following rivers in Iowa...

  Mississippi River at New Boston LD17 affecting Louisa and Mercer

This Flood Watch is based on observed and predicted rainfall over
the next 24 hours.

If rainfall in the basin is less than predicted, the forecast river
stage may not be reached. Conversely, if rainfall is more than
predicted the river may crest higher. Additional rain is likely
Saturday and Sunday. How much rain falls this weekend will affect
river levels into next week.

As the forecast becomes more certain, this watch will either be
upgraded to a warning or cancelled.
