...HEAVY RAINFALL EXPECTED TUESDAY NIGHT INTO WEDNESDAY MORNING...

WIDESPREAD SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS WILL DEVELOP ACROSS THE
REGION LATE TUESDAY AFTERNOON AND CONTINUE INTO WEDNESDAY
MORNING. A TROPICAL-LIKE ENVIRONMENT WILL DEVELOP WHICH WILL CAUSE
ANY THUNDERSTORMS TO BECOME HEAVY RAINFALL PRODUCERS. WIDESPREAD
TOTAL RAINFALL AMOUNTS OF 1 TO 3 INCHES ARE EXPECTED WITH LOCALLY
HIGHER AMOUNTS OF 4 TO 5 INCHES POSSIBLE ACROSS NORTHEAST IOWA AND
SOUTHWEST WISCONSIN. THESE RAINS WOULD CAUSE RISES ON AREA
RIVERS...STREAMS AND CREEKS...WITH SOME FLOODING NOT OUT OF THE
QUESTION. TORRENTIAL DOWNPOURS IN CITIES OR URBAN AREAS COULD
CAUSE STREET FLOODING.

CONFIDENCE IS INCREASING THIS SYSTEM WILL BRING HEAVY RAINFALL AND
INCREASE RAINFALL RATES ACROSS THE AREA. HOWEVER...AXIS OF
HIGHEST RAINFALL AMOUNTS IS STILL UNCERTAIN AND TRENDS WILL
CONTINUE TO BE MONITORED FOR A FLASH FLOOD WATCH.
