Flood Watch in Southeastern South Dakota
The National Weather Service has issued a Flood Watch in Southeastern South Dakota, USA.
A large storm system will bring warmer air northward, along with the potential for moderate to locally heavy rainfall Wednesday, Wednesday night and into Thursday. This combination of conditions will result in an increased risk of river flooding, as well as aerial flooding due the the combination of heavy rain, snowmelt, and poor drainage due to frozen soils.
Significant and rapid river and stream level increases are possible due to runoff with additional potential for localized ice jams. Additionally, flooding of city streets, intersections, and parking lots will be possible.
The alert area covers Bon Homme; Charles Mix; Clay; Douglas; Hutchinson; Lincoln; Minnehaha; Turner; Union and Yankton counties.
The flood watch remains in effect from Wednesday morning through Thursday evening, 3/14/2019.
