...Heavy Rain Event Early Next Week..

The Quad State region is still in line for an extended period of
wet weather from Sunday night through Wednesday. The heaviest
rains are expected Monday night into Wednesday.

The official forecast of total rainfall now ranges from around
one and a quarter inch in the Pinckneyville and Mt Vernon Illinois
areas to nearly three and a half inches along the Tennessee
border in west Kentucky. The axis of the heaviest rainfall is
expected to be farther to the south over Tennessee. The forecast
rainfall has been trending downward a bit across our region, but
more adjustments to the forecast are likely before the event

The rain next week will fall on moist ground, so most of the rain
will quickly run off into creeks, streams and rivers. With water
levels on the Ohio and Mississippi rivers still high, if not still
in flood, flooding issues are likely to develop, especially with
the heavier rains Monday night through Wednesday. Ponding on roads
and areal flooding will be possible, and some area rivers will
climb again, potentially to flood levels. With the heaviest rains
expected farther south over the Cumberland and Tennessee river
basins, the greatest concern will be along the lower Ohio and
south of the confluence on the Mississippi.

Use your time now to prepare accordingly, and stay tuned to the
latest updated forecasts.
