National Weather Service Quad Cities IA/IL
849 PM CDT FRI APR 28 2017

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

  Wapsipinicon River near De Witt 4S affecting Clinton and Scott

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

At this time there is limited confidence associated with rainfall
amounts and the location of predicted rainfall.

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.

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