645 PM CDT MON JUL 27 2015

...HEAVY RAIN...FREQUENT LIGHTNING AND GUSTY WINDS NEAR 30 MPH
POSSIBLE THROUGH 730 PM CDT...

THE CLUSTER OF THUNDERSTORMS THAT HAS BEEN WORKING SOUTH...SOUTHEAST
ACROSS PARTS OF SOUTHERN ILLINOIS AND SOUTHEAST MISSOURI THIS
AFTERNOON WILL CONTINUE TO SLOWLY WORK SOUTHWARD THROUGH SUNSET.

THE THREAT FOR HAIL HAS DIMINISHED...SO THE MAIN CONCERN IS FOR
COPIOUS AMOUNTS OF RAIN AND ISOLATED WIND GUSTS NEAR 30 MPH.

A FEW LOCATIONS MAY SEE RAINFALL AMOUNTS BETWEEN ONE AND ONE AND
HALF INCHES IN AN HOUR. THIS WILL CAUSE SMALL CREEKS AND DITCHES
TO BRIEFLY OVERFLOW...AS WELL CAUSE BRIEF FLOODING OF LOW LYING
AND POORLY DRAINED AREAS AND ROADWAYS.

IN ADDITION...FREQUENT LIGHTNING WILL STILL BE POSSIBLE DURING
THIS TIME...SO GO INDOORS IF A THUNDERSTORM IS CLOSE.

SHOULD THE STORMS HOLD TOGETHER...THE LEADING EDGE WILL LIKELY
MOVE NEAR A PUXICO MISSOURI...MOUNDS ILLINOIS...PADUCAH AND SALEM
KENTUCKY LINE BEFORE THEY WEAKEN CONSIDERABLY.

THE THUNDERSTORMS SHOULD QUICKLY WEAKEN AND DISSIPATE ACROSS THE
AREA AFTER SUNSET.
