Another round of heavy rain could enhance/prolong flooding south

This comes ahead of another impressive upper level disturbance that will once again bring heavy rains to Mid-Missouri through the next 24-36 hours. Lighter amounts of rain - generally a half inch or less - are expected along the Interstate 70 corridor, according to the National Weather Service in Pleasant Hill, Mo. Additional rainfall of one to three inches in the watch area may generate new flooding, or aggravate existing flood conditions where the soil is already saturated from several inches of rain in the past week.


"All indications are that 2-4" of rain are likely across the entire region.


Tonight through Friday morning, 2-to-3 inches of rain is possible and that will prompt a new Flash Flood Watch for central IN beginning tonight and continuing into the wee hours of the morning Friday. However, it appears unlikely at this time that the additional rain will cause any crests on any rivers that are higher than the ones now being experienced.


Drivers were warned not to drive into floodwaters. A slow moving system is taking shape with rain developing Wednesday morning and continuing, nearly non-stop through at least mid-day Thursday. A few scattered showers could occur Thursday, but the rainfall totals are expected to be light.
