Flash Flood Watch
Issued: 3:51 AM CDT Apr. 29, 2017 – National Weather Service

... Flash Flood Watch remains in effect through late Sunday

The Flash Flood Watch continues for

* portions of southern Illinois, southwest Indiana, western
Kentucky, and southeast Missouri, including the following
areas, in southern Illinois, Alexander, Edwards, Franklin,
Gallatin, Hamilton, Hardin, Jackson, Jefferson, Johnson,
Massac, Perry IL, Pope, Pulaski, Saline, Union, Wabash, Wayne
IL, white, and Williamson. In southwest Indiana, Gibson, Pike,
Posey, Spencer, Vanderburgh, and Warrick. In western Kentucky,
Ballard, Carlisle, Daviess, Fulton, Henderson, Hickman,
McCracken, and Union KY. In southeast Missouri, Bollinger,
Butler, Cape Girardeau, Carter, Mississippi, New Madrid, Perry
MO, Ripley, Scott, Stoddard, and Wayne MO.

* Through late Sunday night

* the Flash Flood Watch remains in effect for all of southeast
Missouri, southern Illinois, southwest Indiana, and a few border
counties of west Kentucky along the Ohio and Mississippi rivers.
Numerous thunderstorms with very heavy rain are expected to
persist across the watch area through Saturday morning,
gradually working back toward southeast Missouri and southwest
Illinois during the afternoon and evening hours on Saturday.
Areas further east may see a break in the precipitation Saturday
into Saturday night, but will then see more thunderstorms with
very heavy rainfall move in from the west late Saturday night
and through the day Sunday. Radar estimates of two to five
inches of rain have already fallen over parts of the watch area.
An additional three to five inches of rain is expected to occur
before the storm system exits the area Sunday night, with the
heaviest rainfall expected in the southeast Missouri foothills.
Locally higher amounts are also possible where numerous
thunderstorms move across the same area.

* In addition to the possibility of flash flooding of some
roadways and streams, 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 rivers. Given the widespread rainfall across the
region, other larger river systems, such as the Mississippi and
Ohio rivers will see rises in water levels occur in early may.
Due to the prolonged period of rain, some of the flash flood
warnings that are issued may be transitioned to overland flood

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.
