Several rounds of showers and thunderstorms are expected to move
across the area during this time period. The potential for heavy
rain is highest starting Friday evening into Saturday morning and
again Saturday night into Sunday evening.
Rainfall amounts and locations are subject to change, but the
heaviest amounts appear to be over portions of southeast Missouri
into southwest Illinois ...where a flash flood watch is in
effect. East of this area which would mainly be east of the Ohio
and Wabash Valleys will also receive a good deal of rain over the
weekend. This area could see 3 in Southwest Indiana to around 4
inches along the Kentucky Tennessee border.
There may be a break in the precipitation on Saturday at many
locations as a warm front lifts north out of the region. However,
heavy rainfall chances will increase again Saturday night into
Sunday as a cold front approaches from the west.
The heavy rainfall is expected to cause rises on area water ways.
Confidence is high that heavy rain will fall, but confidence is
lower as to the exact location of the heaviest rainfall. Stay
tuned for later updates or watches concerning this heavy rain
