Rain Prompts Flash Flood Watch Til Noon
Beemer around 5pm Sunday
Rain began soaking eastern Nebraska and western Iowa Sunday around 12 Noon.  Occasional downpours continued through the afternoon.
A Flash Flood Watch was posted for Sunday into Monday morning from Cuming and Burt counties to Omaha and into southeast Nebraska.
At 5pm Sunday, West Point and Oakland  unofficially had about 4 inches of rain with more on the way.
National Weather Service:
...Heavy rain possible through Monday morning across parts of
eastern Nebraska and southwest Iowa...

.An upper level disturbance will continue to move eastward across
the region through Monday. This is helping to create showers and
some embedded thunderstorms. The long duration of the event
suggests that there could be fairly widespread additional rainfall
totals from 1 to 3 inches, with locally heavier amounts possible.
