[ARCHIVED] NWS Situation Update on Rain/Flooding Potential

To All:

More happy news from the NWS.  For those keeping track, the most recent wave was more to our north as it tracked west to east.  I just called the Springfield Office of the NWS and was told that the next wave should include us (Jasper County an d immediate surrounding area).  

Totals - up to 4+ inches of rain when this is finally done.

Timing - beginning darkish (meteorological term) tonight.

Please note that some counties to our north have already seen 4+ inches since early this morning.  This may result in flash floods for our area, regardless of how much rainfall we actually receive today and Sunday.
