Flash Flood Watch
Issued: 4:40 PM CDT Apr. 29, 2017 – National Weather Service

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

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 southeastern
Missouri, southern Illinois, southwestern Indiana, and a few
border counties of western Kentucky along the Ohio and
Mississippi rivers. Numerous thunderstorms with very heavy rain
are expected to spread eastward across mainly southeastern
Missouri and parts of southern Illinois this evening, and
develop there again overnight. This will only worsen an already
serious situation in this part of the region. Meanwhile, areas
further east may not see much precipitation tonight. However,
thunderstorms with very heavy rainfall are expected to expand
eastward into the rest of the region throughout the day Sunday.
Radar estimates of as much as eight inches of rain have already
fallen over parts of the watch area. An additional two to six
inches of rain is expected to occur before the storm system
exits the area Sunday night, with the heaviest rainfall expected
in the Missouri Ozark 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
further 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 warnings.

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.
