May 28, 2018 GMT

Flood advisories have been issued for western and southern Nebraska as a moisture-laden system slowly moves across the state.

Some areas of the Nebraska Panhandle already have seen flash flooding in low-lying areas.

The National Weather Service is warning that rainfall rates of 2 inches to 3 inches per hour are possible with the storms the rest of Monday in south-central Nebraska, and as much as 6 inches could fall.

Additionally, a tornado watch has been issued for the area along the Kansas border.

In Omaha, there’s a 20 percent chance for rain Monday night and a 50 percent chance Tuesday evening.
