...EXCESSIVE RAINFALL EVENT ANTICIPATED TO BEGIN BY THE MIDDLE OF
NEXT WEEK...

PERIODS OF HEAVY RAINFALL ARE EXPECTED TO BEGIN BY THE MIDDLE OF
NEXT WEEK. THIS MAY BEGIN TO CAUSE PROBLEMS AS EARLY AS WEDNESDAY
OVER PARTS OF SOUTHEAST MISSOURI, EVENTUALLY EXTENDING INTO
SOUTHERN ILLINOIS AND PARTS OF FAR WEST KENTUCKY WEDNESDAY AND
WEDNESDAY NIGHT. SHOWERS WILL CONTINUE ON AND OFF INTO SATURDAY.
THERE WILL ALSO BE SCATTERED THUNDERSTORMS FROM TIME TO TIME,
WHICH MAY PRODUCE BRIEF HEAVIER RAINFALL. THE MAJORITY OF THE
HEAVY RAINFALL WILL BE WEDNESDAY AND WEDNESDAY NIGHT.

TOTAL RAINFALL AMOUNTS FROM TUESDAY THROUGH SATURDAY OF FOUR TO
FIVE INCHES MAY BE COMMONPLACE IN SOUTHEAST MISSOURI AND SOUTHWEST
ILLINOIS, WITH HIGHER AMOUNTS POSSIBLE IN THE OZARK FOOTHILLS.
RAINFALL AMOUNTS FARTHER EAST ARE CURRENTLY EXPECTED TO BE IN THE
TWO TO FOUR INCH RANGE.

SOILS ACROSS THE REGION ARE ALREADY MOIST. THIS WILL INCREASE THE
CHANCES FOR RUNOFF OF WATER OVER THE GROUND, FILLING SMALL
DITCHES, CREEKS, AND STREAMS.

THERE WILL BE SOME VARIABILITY IN THE EXACT TIMING, TRACK AND
AMOUNTS OF THE HEAVY RAIN NEXT WEEK, SO STAY TUNED TO THE
LATEST FORECASTS.

NOW IS A GOOD TIME TO PLAN AND BE PREPARED FOR THE POTENTIAL FOR
HEAVY AND POTENTIALLY FLOOD PRODUCING RAINS NEXT WEEK.
