DES MOINES, Iowa - A slow moving storm is expected to bring heavy rain and more flooding to Iowa this week.

The heaviest rain is expected in part of central Iowa.

"Tuesday night into Wednesday and that is expected to bring one-and-a-half to two inches to much of Iowa, up to three inches in some areas." Meterologist Brad Small, with the National Weather Service in Des Moines says.

Two to three inches of rain is expected in the Western Des Moines metro suburbs, and a region from Ames to the Southwest corner of the state.

Much of the rest of Iowa is likely to see one-and-a-half to two inches of rain, including Fort Dodge, Mason City, Waterloo, Marshalltown, Cedar Rapids, Iowa City, Davenport, and Ottumwa from Tuesday night to Wednesday night.

Small says river flooding is likely in the areas that get the heaviest rain, including the Raccoon and Des Moines Rivers in Central Iowa. Flash flooding is not likely.
