rain is highest starting Friday night and continuing through
Rainfall amounts and locations are subject to change, but there
has been a fairly consistent signal to focus the heaviest amounts
over portions of southeast Missouri into southwest Illinois. This

western Kentucky and southwest Indiana.

particularly the smaller rivers in southeast Missouri such as the
Saint Francis, Black, and Current. Minor to moderate river
flooding is possible.
Confidence is high that heavy rain will fall, but confidence is
lower as to the exact location of the heaviest rainfall. Stay
