...Periods of Heavy Rain Today and Tonight...
.Scattered showers and thunderstorms developing this morning will
become more widespread this afternoon and evening as a very humid
air mass remains over eastern Iowa and northwestern Illinois.
Rainfall rates of 1 to 2 inches per hour could produce flash
flooding in urban areas, and near smaller rivers and streams. More
prolonged high water levels are also possible as the ground
becomes saturated.
The National Weather Service in Quad Cities has issued a
* Flash Flood Watch for portions of Illinois and Iowa, including
the following areas, in Illinois, Bureau, Carroll, Henry IL,
Jo Daviess, Putnam, Rock Island, Stephenson, and Whiteside. In
Iowa, Clinton, Delaware, Dubuque, Jackson, Jones, and Scott.
* Through Friday morning.
* Slow moving showers and thunderstorms and multiple rounds of
storms may produce heavy rain over already saturated ground.
Peak rainfall rates may reach 1 to 2 inches per hour. Total rain
amounts will vary considerably, but an additional 2 to 4 inches
are possible in the heaviest bands, with isolated higher amounts
not out of the question.
* Those near smaller rivers, streams, and low-lying areas should
be prepared for dangerous flash flooding and more prolonged high
water levels. Urban flooding is also a threat. Remember never
to drive through flooded roadways. There were many reports of
stalled vehicles in the Quad Cities on Wednesday from people
attempting to cross through flood waters.

A Flash Flood Watch means that flash flooding is possible.
Monitor forecasts and take action if flash flood warnings are
issued or flash flooding develops.

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 routed flow from upstream.
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.
The Flood Watch continues for
The Mississippi River at Rock Island LD15
