A slow moving storm system may produce flooding rains today (Monday) from the western Great Lakes into the central Plains. Flash Flood Watches have been issued in parts of Wisconsin, Michigan, Iowa and Nebraska. More than 3" of rain may fall in some areas with showers and thunderstorms into Tuesday. The low pressure center will slowly move across Iowa into Illinois with numerous showers and thunderstorms.  The slow moving nature of the storms, coupled with high humidity, may produce flooding in some areas this afternoon and evening (Monday). As some storms re-develop over the same area, the ground could become over-saturated, increasing the flooding threat. For WeatherNation: Meteorologist Mace Michaels
