Scattered thunderstorms will continue to move east over the

greatest risk for widespread heavy rain and flash flooding is
currently anticipated. North of Interstate 80, just isolated
storms producing very localized heavy rain are expected.

Very warm and humid conditions will continue into early evening
south of Interstate 80, with heat index readings topping out in
the upper 90s to near 100 degrees.

Some area rivers are experiencing flooding. Please see the latest

Flash Flood Watch

Flood Watch

320 PM CDT Wed Jul 26 2017

...Heavy rain threat appears to be shifting south...

.A storm system will continue to move through the Midwest this
afternoon and tonight with a very warm and moist airmass. The high
moisture levels means that storms will be capable of producing
heavy rain. High rainfall rates from storms combined with storms
moving over the same areas could result in flash flooding across
portions of the watch area. Although an isolated storm may still
produce locally heavy rain north of I-80 this afternoon and
evening, the widespread threat of heavy rain and flash flooding is
shifting to along and south of the Interstate.
