more thunderstorms with very heavy rainfall move in from the

inches of rain could fall in the watch area by the time the
entire event is finished Sunday night. Locally higher amounts
are also possible where numerous thunderstorms repeat.

* In addition to the possibility of flash flooding of some

rises on many of the area rivers, particularly the smaller
rivers in southeast Missouri, such as the Saint Francis,
Black, and Current.
