Widespread showers and a few thunderstorms will continue to

southeast of Robinson to Olney line. Between 1 and 2 inches of
rain has fallen since sunrise with locally 2 to 3 inches in
southern Richland county south of Olney and in far southwest
Lawrence county. Heavy downpours from the remnants of tropical
storm Cindy will produce another 1 to 2 inches of rain with
locally 2 to 3 inches in Lawrence and southeast parts of Richland
and Crawford counties through 1 pm. High rainfall rates could lead
to rapid inundation of flood prone roadways. Sharp rises in
creeks and small streams may occur, and low lying areas may have
localized flooding.
