..REMNANTS OF GORDON TO BRING SOAKING RAINS
 
 
RAIN CHANCES WILL BE RAMPING UP DURING THE NEXT 24 TO 48 HOURS, AS  
THE REMNANTS FROM TROPICAL STORM GORDON WORK THEIR WAY UP AND  
ACROSS THE MISSISSIPPI AND OHIO RIVER VALLEYS. THE BEST TIME  
PERIOD FOR WET WEATHER LOOKS LIKE IT WILL OCCUR FROM LATE FRIDAY  
AFTERNOON THROUGH SATURDAY NIGHT, AS GORDON AND ITS REMNANTS LIFT  
ACROSS THE AREA. RAINS WILL WIND DOWN WEST TO EAST ON SUNDAY AS  
GORDON DEPARTS.  
 
STORM TOTAL RAINFALL AMOUNTS MAY EXCEED 3 INCHES, UPWARDS TO 4  
INCHES, ALONG AND JUST NORTH OF INTERSTATE 64 IN SOUTHERN  
ILLINOIS, TRAILING SOUTHWARD AND WESTWARD TOWARD THE SOUTHEAST  
MISSOURI OZARKS. BROADER 2 TO 3 INCH RAINFALL TOTALS WILL BE  
REALIZED FOR THE BULK OF OUR AREA, ESPECIALLY ALONG AND NORTH OF  
THE OHIO RIVER, FOR MUCH OF SOUTHEAST MISSOURI, SOUTHERN ILLINOIS,  
SOUTHWEST INDIANA, AND NORTHWEST KENTUCKY. 1 TO 2 INCH RAINFALL  
AMOUNTS ARE FORECAST FOR MOST OF SOUTHWEST KENTUCKY.  
 
GIVEN OUR AREA HAS BEEN SO DRY, THESE RAINFALL AMOUNTS SHOULD  
PROVIDE A GOOD WETTING AND SATURATION TO OUR DRY GROUNDS, AND  
REFILL PARCHED WATERWAYS. HOWEVER, AS WITH ALL TROPICAL SYSTEMS,  
BE AWARE THAT VERY EFFICIENT RAINFALL, ESPECIALLY IF IT OCCURS  
WITHIN A SHORT PERIOD OF TIME, OR STORMS ARE ABLE TO REPEAT  
OVERTOP OF EACH OTHER, MAY LEAD TO SOME FLOODING ISSUES,  
ESPECIALLY IN FLOOD PRONE AREAS. ROADWAYS THAT POND MAY ALSO OFFER  
A TRAVELING HAZARD.  
 
STAY TUNED TO THE LATEST FORECASTS AND UPDATES FOR THIS DEVELOPING  
WEATHER EVENT.
