Flash flooding possible early this morning across Northeast Iowa and far southwest Wisconsin.

Although the heaviest precipitation is expected to stay to the south and east, the saturated soils will cause much of the rain to go directly into runoff, resulting in flash flooding. Expect the runoff to cause river levels to rise as well.

  • Look for numerous showers and embedded thunderstorms to persist through the early morning hours. The potential exists for rainfall amounts up to 1 inch, with locally higher amounts.
