...Heavy precipitation amounts expected Tuesday night through
Thursday...

A large scale weather system is expected to impact parts of the
Quad State Tuesday night through Thursday. Locally heavy rain is
possible during Tuesday night into Wednesday. Minor water problems
could develop given the relatively high soil moisture across the
area.

There may be a bit of a lull late Wednesday into Wednesday evening,
followed by another surge of precipitation overnight Wednesday into
Thursday. This round may result in not only more rainfall, it will
likely produce mixed wintry precipitation as well.

The event overall will likely total 1 to 2 inches of liquid
equivalent precipitation with locally higher amounts expected in
some areas. Most areas will likely be closer to the 2 inch amount.

Any excess runoff of rain could lead to some flooding of low-lying
and
flood-prone areas Wednesday and Thursday.

Stay tuned to later forecasts and statements regarding this
evolving weather system this week.
