...An Additional One to Two Inches of Rainfall Possible Through

Over an inch of rain has fallen over portions of southeast
Missouri and southern Illinois, but much lighter rains have fallen
farther east across the region. Another round of potentially
heavy rain is forecast for today and tonight. Additional rainfall
amounts will range from around a half inch in the northwest to
nearly 2 inches in the far southeast corner of the region.

Rain chances should wane for awhile today, before picking up
again later in the afternoon and especially tonight. This second
round of rainfall will primarily impact west Kentucky and
southwest Indiana.

Storm total rainfall for the entire area will average 1 to 2
inches with locally higher amounts possible. This amount of
rainfall over a 24 to 36 hour period to begin the weekend will
slow the fall of area river and stream levels, and may cause
flooding of low land and flood prone areas. Keep in mind that any
thunderstorms that develop could potentially dump locally heavier
amounts that may heighten the flooding risk.

Impacts from the rain and thunderstorm threat through the first
half of the weekend could also be heightened, considering the
spring like warmth which may draw more outdoor activities than
past, much colder weekends.
