The lead meteorologist at the National Weather Service office in Johnston says it’s unlikely the rest of Iowa will experience the kind of flooding that’s hit the 10 counties along the Mississippi River. Brad Small says almost all of the flooding in eastern Iowa is caused by melting snow the fell in Minnesota and Wisconsin.

Drought conditions exist in many areas of western Iowa and Small says it would take a lot of rain to change that. Small made his comments during taping of “Iowa Press” which aired over the weekend on Iowa P-B-S.
