Several rounds of showers and thunderstorms are expected to move across the area during this time period. The potential for heavy rain is highest starting Friday evening into Saturday morning and again Saturday night into Sunday evening. Rainfall amounts and locations are subject to change, but there has been a fairly consistent signal to focus the heaviest amounts over portions of southeast Missouri into southwest Illinois. This area could see 3 to 5 inches with some locally higher amounts possible. Amounts are expected to be lighter further east over western Kentucky and southwest Indiana. There may be a break in the precipitation on Saturday at many locations as a warm front lifts north out of the region. However, heavy rainfall chances will increase again Saturday night into Sunday as a cold front approaches from the west. The heavy rainfall is expected to cause rises on some area rivers, particularly the smaller rivers in southeast Missouri such as the Saint Francis, Black, and Current. Minor to moderate river flooding is possible. Confidence is high that heavy rain will fall, but confidence is lower as to the exact location of the heaviest rainfall. Stay tuned for later updates or watches concerning this heavy rain event. $$ SP
