JAMESTOWN, N.D. (AP) — Forecasters say heavy rain and thunderstorms expected this weekend could cause some flooding along the James River Valley.

Meteorologist Bill Abeling with the National Weather Service in Bismarck told NewsDakota.com that showers are lining up in western South Dakota from east of Rapid City through the east of Mobridge. He says they'll likely trek between Bismarck and Jamestown and up through Grand Forks.

Abeling says there's an elevated risk for flash flooding, but the weather service is just watching the storm and has not issued any warnings.

Jamestown is in the area with the highest potential rainfall, with 3 inches expected over the weekend.
