The Flash Flood Watch is now in effect for
* Portions of Illinois and Missouri...including the following
counties...in Illinois...Adams IL...Brown IL and Pike IL. In Missouri...
Audrain MO... Knox MO...Lewis MO...Lincoln MO...Marion MO...Monroe MO... Pike MO...Ralls MO and Shelby MO.
* Through Sunday morning

* The remnants of tropical depression Gordon will interact with
a cold front stalled across Missouri and Illinois. Rich
tropical moisture from Gordon will produce very heavy rainfall
across the watch area starting late tonight and continuing
into the weekend. Rainfall amounts of 3 to 6 inches are likely
with locally higher amounts.

* Heavy rainfall will result in flooding of low lying or poor
drainage areas...and ultimately dangerous flash flooding on
smaller creeks and streams. Significant rises on larger
streams and rivers will also be possible.
