Kentucky, and southeast Missouri, including the following
areas, in southern Illinois, Alexander, Edwards, Franklin,
Gallatin, Hamilton, Hardin, Jackson, Jefferson, Johnson,

Missouri, Bollinger, Butler, Cape Girardeau, Carter,
Mississippi, New Madrid, Perry MO, Ripley, Scott, Stoddard,
and Wayne MO.

* From Friday evening through late Sunday night

* the watch is generally in effect for locations along and west of
a line extending from near Fulton, Kentucky to Mount Carmel,
Illinois, including all of southeast Missouri. Much of this
region has already received 1.5 to 3 inches of rainfall in the
past 12 to 18 hours. Though things may tend to dry out a bit
today and Friday, numerous thunderstorms with very heavy rain
are expected to develop Friday night and then again Saturday
night, Sunday and Sunday evening. There may be a break in the
heavy rain threat during the day Saturday over western Kentucky,
southwest Indiana, far southeast Missouri and the southern tip
of Illinois. Several inches of rain are expected before all is
said and done late Sunday night. The highest amounts are
expected to fall from southeast Missouri into southwest
Illinois.

* In addition to the possibility of flash flooding, the heavy
rainfall is expected to cause rises on many of the area rivers,
particularly the smaller rivers in southeast Missouri such as
the Saint Francis, black, and current.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A Flash Flood Watch means that conditions may develop that lead
to flash flooding. Flash flooding is a very dangerous situation.

You should monitor later forecasts and be prepared to take action
should flash flood warnings be issued.
