This Hazardous Weather Outlook is for portions of southern
Illinois, southwest Indiana, western Kentucky, and southeast
Missouri.

.DAY ONE...This Afternoon and Tonight

There is a marginal risk of severe thunderstorms from mid
afternoon to early this evening, mainly along and north of a line
from Carbondale, Illinois, to Owensboro, Kentucky. If a storm
develops and becomes severe, damaging winds, is the primary severe
weather hazard anticipated, although small hail is also possible.
An isolated tornado would not be out of the question. Otherwise,
thunderstorms are forecast for the area in entirety through
tonight, with locally heavy rainfall the primary storm related
hazard.

In addition, south to southwest wind speeds will average 15 to 30
mph this afternoon, and may gust up to 40 mph at times, until
early evening.

Flooding is occurring along the Green and Ohio rivers. Refer to
those warnings and statements for details.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Friday through Wednesday

Light snow, possibly mixed with a little sleet and freezing rain,
is expected Saturday morning. A dusting to a couple of tenths of
an inch of snow is possible mainly in southeast Missouri and
southern Illinois, but any accumulations should melt by early
afternoon.

A prolonged period of wet weather is forecast to set up over the
Ohio and Mississippi River Valleys next week. As such, the potential
for flooding will need to be monitored in the coming days as we gain
a better idea of where and exactly how much rainfall may occur.

There is a chance of thunderstorms from Monday night into Tuesday
night. Severe weather is not anticipated.

Flooding is forecast to continue along the Green and Ohio rivers.
Refer to those warnings and statements for details.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...

Spotters should maintain alert status and monitor the latest
forecasts for any updated information.
