Flood Watch in Eastern Nebraska
The National Weather Service has issued a Flood Watch in Eastern Nebraska, USA.
Warmer temperatures will accompany a strong storm system which will likely produce 1 to 3 inches of rain the next several days. This will heighten the risk of river flooding due to the unusual combination of heavy rain, snowmelt, frozen ground, and thick ice cover on area rivers.
ADDITIONAL DETAILS: Significant and rapid river level increases are possible due to excessive runoff. Ice jams could also develop which would further enhance the flood threat.
The alert area covers Antelope; Boone; Burt; Cass; Cedar; Colfax; Cuming; Dodge; Douglas; Knox; Lancaster; Madison; Otoe; Pierce; Sarpy; Saunders; Stanton; Thurston; Washington; Wayne.
The flood watch remains in effect from late tonight through Thursday evening, 3/14/2019.
