* From 7 PM CDT this evening through Tuesday morning
* an extended period of moderate to heavy rainfall is expected
this evening and through the overnight hours. A very slow moving
front is expected to move into the Ozarks late this evening and
stall across the area. This will lead to the potential for
periods of torrential rainfall and flash flooding. Rainfall
amounts from 2 to 3 inches will be common overnight. Some
locations may receive in excess of 4 inches.
* After the rainfall much of the region received from last night
and earlier today... soils are becoming saturated. Most locations
recorded from a half to one and a half inches of rainfall. This
recent rainfall in combination with the expected rainfall
tonight may lead to flash flooding on area low water crossings
as well as creeks and streams.
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.
