...The National Weather Service in Des Moines has issued a Flood
Watch for all or portions of the following rivers in Iowa...West
Fork Des Moines River...

  Affecting the following counties in Iowa...Emmet

River forecasts include observed precipitation, as well as expected
precipitation 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 rainfall forecast becomes more certain, this watch will
either be upgraded to a warning or cancelled.
