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

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight

Flooding continues at several points of the Ohio and Mississippi
Rivers. Refer to the flood statements for details.

Fire danger will be elevated this afternoon, particularly across
the Ozarks of southeast Missouri, where winds will gust through
the teens, as relative humidity bottoms out in the lower 20s.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Friday through Wednesday

There is a marginal risk thunderstorms may become strong to severe
in portions of southeast Missouri and far west Kentucky late
Friday afternoon and evening. If this were to occur, damaging hail
and strong wind gusts will be the primary hazards. General
thunderstorms possible elsewhere will have heavy rain as their
primary hazard.

Another chance of thunderstorms is in the forecast for southeast
MO and far west KY on Sunday night, with the threat for storms
overspreading the rest of the area on Monday. Depending upon the
track of that storm system, a few strong or possibly severe
storms cannot be ruled out.

The continuation of flooding can best be detailed in the latest
flood statements.


Spotters should stay tuned to the latest forecasts and updates for
potential activation times.
