...One to Three Inches of Rainfall Still Forecast...

A couple rounds of rainfall are setting up to take us into the
weekend. The first round of showers and thunderstorms will hit
tonight, primarily this evening west of the Mississippi river,
then later tonight for areas east of the river. This round will
produce 1 to 2 inches of rainfall on average.

Rain chances should wane for awhile on Saturday, before picking
up again later in the day and especially Saturday night. This
second round of rainfall will be mainly for the eastern third of
the area. Rainfall totals there could be in the 1 to 2 inch range,
with lesser amounts west of the Wabash river and Lakes area of
western Kentucky.

Storm total rainfall for the entire area still looks to average in
the 1 to 3 inch range for the two primary rounds of rainfall added
together. 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.
