...FLASH FLOOD WATCH REMAINS IN EFFECT FROM THIS EVENING THROUGH
LATE SUNDAY NIGHT...

The Flash Flood Watch continues for

* Portions of southern Illinois, western Kentucky, and southeast
  Missouri, including the following areas, in southern Illinois,
  Alexander, Edwards, Franklin, Gallatin, Hamilton, Hardin,
  Jackson, Jefferson, Johnson, Massac, Perry IL, Pope, Pulaski,
  Saline, Union, Wabash, Wayne IL, White, and Williamson. In
  western Kentucky, Ballard, Carlisle, Fulton, Hickman, and
  McCracken. In southeast Missouri, Bollinger, Butler, Cape
  Girardeau, Carter, Mississippi, New Madrid, Perry MO, Ripley,
  Scott, Stoddard, and Wayne MO.

* From this evening through late Sunday night

* The watch is generally in effect for locations along and west of
  a line extending from near Fulton, Kentucky to Mount Carmel,
  Illinois, including all of southeast Missouri and southern
  Illinois. Much of this region already received 1.5 to 3 inches
  of rainfall Wednesday and Wednesday night. Numerous
  thunderstorms with very heavy rain are expected to develop later
  this afternoon and continue tonight. Some areas of western
  Kentucky and the southern tip of Illinois may see a break in the
  precipitation Saturday into Saturday night, but will then see
  more thunderstorms with very heavy rainfall move in from the
  west late Saturday night and through the day Sunday. From 3 to 6
  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
  roadways and streams, the heavy rainfall is expected to cause
  rises on many of the area rivers, particularly the smaller
  rivers in southeast Missouri, such as the Saint Francis, Black,
  and Current.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

A Flash Flood Watch means that conditions may develop that lead
to flash flooding. Flash flooding is a very dangerous situation.

You should monitor later forecasts and be prepared to take action
should Flash Flood Warnings be issued.
