    Special Weather Statement Issued by National Weather Service

    Stoddard County, Missouri - The National Weather Service in Paducah, Kentucky has issued a SPECIAL WEATHER STATEMENT until 3:30 p.m. Tuesday.

    SPECIAL WEATHER STATEMENT UNTIL 3:30PM CDT TUE

    ...MORE RAINFALL HEADING INTO THE REGION.

    .. ANOTHER STRONG, SLOW-MOVING STORM SYSTEM WILL BRING MORE MODERATE TO HEAVY RAINFALL TO THE REGION WEDNESDAY THROUGH THURSDAY. 1 TO 3 INCHES OF RAIN IS FORECAST, WITH THE HEAVIEST RAINS FALLING OVER AREAS FROM PERRYVILLE MISSOURI THROUGH PINCKNEYVILLE, MT VERNON AND FAIRFIELD ILLINOIS.

    A LARGE MAJORITY OF THIS RAIN IS EXPECTED WEDNESDAY NIGHT INTO THURSDAY MORNING, WHEN SOME EMBEDDED THUNDERSTORMS WILL BE POSSIBLE. WHILE THESE RAINFALL AMOUNTS PALE IN COMPARISON TO THE HEAVY RAINS THAT FELL OVER THE WEEKEND, THEY WILL SERVE TO AGGRAVATE EXISTING FLOODING AND POSSIBLY LEAD TO NEW FLOODING PROBLEMS. MANY RIVER FORECASTS ACROSS THE AREA WILL BE IMPACTED, AT LEAST WITH A PROLONGED FLOOD WAVE, IF NOT NEW OR HIGHER CRESTS. RIVER FORECASTS LATER TODAY SHOULD INCORPORATE MOST OF THIS FORECAST RAINFALL.

    PLEASE STAY TUNED FOR THE LATEST FORECAST AND IMPACT INFORMATION ON THIS UPCOMING HEAVY RAINFALL EVENT.

    Special Weather Statement Issued

    Stoddard County, Missouri - The National Weather Service in Paducah, Kentucky has issued a SPECIAL WEATHER STATEMENT for Stoddard County, Missouri until 5:45 a.m. Tuesday morning.

    SPECIAL WEATHER STATEMENT UNTIL 5:45AM CDT TUE

    ...MORE RAINFALL HEADING INTO THE REGION

    ... ALTHOUGH THE UPCOMING RAIN EVENT, WHICH WILL START LATE TUESDAY, WILL NOT BE AS SIGNIFICANT AS WHAT WE RECEIVED OVER THE WEEKEND, THERE IS STILL SOME CONCERN. ANOTHER 1 TO 2.5 INCHES OF RAIN WILL FALL OVER ALREADY SATURATED GROUND.

    THE HEAVIEST RAINFALL IS EXPECTED TO FALL ALONG AN AXIS FROM NEAR ST. LOUIS EASTWARD ALONG AND JUST NORTH OF I-64 ACROSS SOUTHERN ILLINOIS AND SOUTHWEST INDIANA.

    THIS UPCOMING EVENT MAY BE MORE OF A FLASH FLOOD AND LESS OF A RIVER ISSUE IN SOUTHERN ILLINOIS.

    HOWEVER, IT MAY BE AN ISSUE ON THE LARGER STEMS SUCH AS THE MISSISSIPPI. RIVER FORECASTS TOMORROW WILL INCLUDE THE EXPECTED RAINFALL FROM THIS UPCOMING SYSTEM. THERE WILL LIKELY BE SOME REVISIONS TO CURRENT AMOUNTS AND LOCATIONS AS WE GET CLOSER TO THE EVENT. THE CURRENT DRY PERIOD WILL ALLOW A GREAT DEAL OF RUNOFF TO OCCUR WHICH WILL HELP THE SITUATION.

    THE UPCOMING RAINFALL SHOULD ONLY PRODUCE MINOR RISES ON THE BIG MUDDY, SKILLET FORK, LITTLE WABASH, AND WABASH RIVERS. AT SOME LOCATIONS, LIKE MURPHYSBORO, AND POSSIBLY NEAR NEW HARMONY, THE HEAVY RAINFALL MAY SLIGHTLY INCREASE THE CREST LEVEL. MAINLY, THIS RAIN SHOULD SLOW THE FALL AND KEEP RIVERS AT A HIGH LEVEL FOR A LONGER PERIOD OF TIME.

    THE SMALLER RIVERS IN SOUTHEAST MISSOURI WILL GENERALLY CREST BEFORE OR DURING THE EVENT AND THE HEAVIEST RAINFALL WILL BE WELL TO THE NORTH OF THOSE BASINS.

    Missourians Should Take Precautions in Flooded Areas

    Missourians Should Take Precautions in Flooded Areas

    Missourians should take these precautions in areas affected by flooding:
    • Low water crossings are among the most dangerous spots. Never attempt to cross one that is flooded.
    • Never drive past a barricade closing flooded roads. They are there to protect you.
    • Never expect barriers to block off flooded low-water crossings, bridges or roads because flash flood waters often rise so quickly authorities do not have time to respond.
    • If your vehicle becomes stuck in rising water, get out quickly and move to higher ground because rapidly rising water may engulf the vehicle and sweep it away.
    • In the rain, if your wipers are in use your headlights should be on too. It’s the law.
