Weather Forecast and Cedar River Information

Cedar River under 3rd Ave Bridge in downtown Cedar Rapids 6-30 1240pm
Bob James

The area continues to recover from last night’s torrential rains.  The Cedar River in Cedar Rapids swelled over two feet in three hours.  The river was at 9.85 feet at 10:15 last evening and had risen to 12.05 feet by 1:15 this morning following reports of as much as six inches of rain.  The river is currently forecast to the morning of the 4th of July, at 17.5 feet…near it’s crest of last Tuesday, June 24th.

The last thing we need is more rain, but as the CBS 2 Radar shows more is on the way.  The National Weather Service in the Quad Cities has our area under extreme flash flood threat today, mainly between 2 and 10pm.  The overall severe storm threat for the listening area is moderate.

This graphic from the National Weather Service puts all of today’s hazards together.  Let’s hope the storms either break up or move quickly; anything to avoid a repeat of last night.
