  the following areas, in southwest Iowa, Fremont, Mills, and
  Page. In southeast Nebraska, Cass, Gage, Jefferson, Johnson,
  Lancaster, Nemaha, Otoe, Pawnee, Richardson, and Saline.

* From Monday afternoon through Tuesday evening

* Several rounds of thunderstorms are expected Monday afternoon
  through 7pm Tuesday. Total rainfall amounts of 1 to 3 inches

  streams could become flooded during and immediately after
  heavy rainfall.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

A Flash Flood Watch means that conditions may develop that lead
to flash flooding. Flash flooding is a very dangerous situation.

You should monitor later forecasts and be prepared to take action
should Flash Flood Warnings be issued.
