549 AM CDT Wed Apr 26 2017

A strong slow moving storm system will affect the region over the
weekend. A warm moist air mass will be in place across a portion of
the area as the storm system moves through. Seasonally high atmospheric
moisture will allow for high rainfall rates. These high rainfall rates
will combine with the slow movement of the system to produce multiple
rounds of heavy rain. Widespread rainfall totals of 2 to 5 inches are
expected between Friday night and Sunday evening. Locally higher totals
are possible across southeastern Missouri over the weekend. Please keep
in mind that these values are in additional to the 1 to 2 inches of
rainfall that is expected to occur today.

People should remain alert to the possibility of flooding, particularly
in flood prone areas through the weekend. Stay informed of the latest
National Weather Service forecast and be prepared to take protective
action should any flooding materialize.
