Flash Flood Watch
Issued: 3:08 PM CDT Apr. 27, 2017 – National Weather Service

... Flash Flood Watch remains in effect from Friday evening
through late Sunday night...

The Flash Flood Watch continues for

* portions of southern Illinois, 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
western Kentucky, Ballard, Carlisle, Fulton, Hickman, and
McCracken. In southeast 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 24 to 36 hours. Though things may tend to dry out a bit
through the day 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. An additional
3 to 6 inches could fall on this already wetted ground by the
time the entire event is finished Sunday night.

* 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.
