During the next 24-hour period, a large area of heavy rainfall is forecast from
eastern Nebraska, across much of Iowa and northern Missouri.  Amounts ranging from
1 to 3 inches are expected.  Rainfall from .50 to 1 inch is expected across much of
Kansas, central and northeast Nebraska, and the eastern half of South Dakota.
Lighter amounts of precipitation are forecast across much of the remainder of the
Missouri River Basin.

The forecast rainfall has prompted the issuance of flood forecasts for several forecast
points along the Grand River in Missouri.  Significant rises are also forecast along the
Thompson and Chariton Rivers.  Several tributaries of the Missouri River above Kansas City
are also forecast to have signficant rises, including the West and East Nishnabotna Rivers,
the Nishnabotna River, the 102 River, and the Platte River.
