The National Weather Service has issued a flash flood watch through 7 am Wednesday for Burt, Butler, Cass, Colfax, Cuming, Dodge, Douglas, Johnson, Lancaster, Madison, Otoe, Pawnee, Platte, Sarpy, Saunders, Stanton, Thurston, Washington and Wayne. In Iowa, the watch area is made up of Harrison, Mills, Monona, Pottawattamie and Shelby Counties.


Large portions of eastern Nebraska and western Iowa  could see rainfall totals of 2 to 4 inches through Tuesday night. Some areas could see up to 6 inches.

The heavy rain will increase the potential for river and stream flooding as well as flash flooding, according to the National Weather Service office in Valley. Residents should expect substantial rising water on area rivers and streams.
