  southwest Buffalo County and northern Phelps County. Minor low
  land flooding will continue to be possible in and around ice jams
  until they break up. Areas immediately downstream over
  southwestern Buffalo County should also pay close attention for

  jam may break up later this week as temperatures warm into the 50s.


Please report flooding to your local law enforcement agency when you
can do so safely.
