...HEAVY RAIN UP TO AN INCH LIKELY WITH LINE OF THUNDERSTORMS
THROUGH 6 PM CDT...

HEAVY RAIN...WITH RAINFALL TOTALS RANGING FROM SIX TENTHS TO ONE
INCH...WILL BE LIKELY WITH THE LEADING EDGE OF THE LINE OF
THUNDERSTORMS MOVING ACROSS SOUTHERN ILLINOIS...SOUTHEAST
MISSOURI...SOUTHWEST INDIANA...AND NORTHWEST KENTUCKY THIS
AFTERNOON.

THE HEAVY RAIN WILL LAST APPROXIMATELY A HALF HOUR BEFORE THE
RAIN INTENSITY LESSENS DRAMATICALLY.

THIS RAIN WILL LIKELY OVERWHELM SMALL DITCHES AND STREAMS BRIEFLY
AFTER THE STORMS ROLL THROUGH YOUR AREA. THIS MAY ALSO CAUSE
MOMENTARY PONDING OF WATER ON ROADWAYS...ESPECIALLY IN URBAN AND
POORLY DRAINED LOCATIONS.

IF YOU ARE ABLE...PLEASE DELAY TRAVEL UNTIL THE RAINFALL HAS TIME
TO RUNOFF AND DRAIN AWAY FROM YOUR AREA. AVOID TRAVEL ON ROADS
THAT ARE COVERED WITH WATER.

LIGHT RAIN WILL LIKELY FOLLOW THE HEAVY RAIN UP TO AN HOUR
FOLLOWING THE PASSAGE OF THE INITIAL LINE OF THUNDERSTORMS.
