...Heavy rainfall could lead to flooding later this week...

Increasing chances of rain later this week could set the stage
for flooding across the area by Thursday night and Friday. A
frontal boundary currently across the central plains through
Minnesota is the focus of thunderstorms. These storms should
increase in coverage the next 2 days as the front begins moving
south across Missouri and Illinois.

Meanwhile, the moisture from Hurricane Newton will add to the
rainfall potential as the front drifts south. Rainfall through
Friday could total between 2 and 4 inches across the area. Four
inches of rainfall in a short period of time could trigger life-
threatening flash flooding.

People late Thursday and Friday should remain alert to the
possibility of flooding, particularly in flood prone areas. Stay
informed of the latest Weather Service statements and be prepared
to take protective action should any flooding materialize.
