..TROPICAL RAINFALLS ON THEIR WAY UP THE OHIO VALLEY
 
 
THE REMNANTS OF TROPICAL STORM GORDON, CURRENTLY STALLED OVER  
ARKANSAS, WILL FEED MOISTURE SLOWLY UP THE OHIO VALLEY THROUGH THE  
END OF THE WORK WEEK. RAIN CHANCES WILL INCREASE EACH DAY, WITH  
SCATTERED TO NUMEROUS HEAVY RAIN SHOWERS EXPECTED ON FRIDAY AND  
SATURDAY. THE BEST COVERAGE AT THIS TIME FOR BOTH DAYS LOOKS TO BE  
ALONG THE I-64 CORRIDOR.  
 
SATURDAY NIGHT THROUGH EARLY MONDAY, THOSE REMNANTS WILL GET  
PICKED UP BY AN UPPER LEVEL DISTURBANCE MOVING INTO THE MIDWEST.  
THIS SYSTEM WILL HELP REFOCUS SHOWERS AND STORMS, BRINGING A LARGE  
AREA OF HEAVY RAIN SHOWERS INTO OUR REGION. DURING THIS TIME  
PERIOD, AREAL AVERAGE RAINFALL TOTALS OF 2 TO 3 INCHES ARE  
FORECAST ALONG AND NORTH OF THE I-64 CORRIDOR, WITH 1-2 INCHES  
LIKELY TO THE SOUTH. LOCALLY HIGHER AMOUNTS ARE POSSIBLE.  
 
AREA RIVERS SHOULD BE ABLE TO HANDLE THIS INFLUX OF RAINFALL,  
THOUGH SMALLER CREEKS MAY REACH BANKFULL, CAUSING SOME LOCALIZED  
FLOODING. AS THE FORECAST IS FINE TUNED OVER THE NEXT DAY OR TWO,  
A FLOOD WATCH MAY BE REQUIRED.
