...Locally Heavy Rain Possible with Storms...

.A couple of upper level weather disturbances will move through
the region tonight resulting in periods of thunderstorms. These
storms will become efficient rain producers and could put down
locally heavy amounts of rain. Early indications are that parts of
western Iowa and southeast Nebraska and points east into southern
Iowa and northern Missouri would be the favored area for locally
heavy rains. The bulk of the stronger storms should move out of
the area by midnight. Most locations should be able to handle one
to three inches of rainfall, however amounts higher than that
could lead to local flash flooding.
