This Hazardous Weather Outlook is for portions of southern
Illinois, southwest Indiana, western Kentucky, and southeast
Missouri.

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight

Patchy dense fog will be present through the mid-morning hours
across southeast Missouri into southwest Illinois.

There is a slight chance of thunderstorms this evening along and
south of a line from Fulton to Murray to Hopkinsville in western
Kentucky. Severe weather is not expected.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Thursday through Tuesday

Widespread showers and a few thunderstorms will bring a heavy
rainfall and flooding threat to the region late Friday and Friday
night. Two inches is likely from the Missouri Bootheel through much
of west Kentucky. Instability is weak across our region and is
mainly limited to the southern border region. However, given the
strong wind fields expected, severe storms cannot be completely
ruled out in those areas Friday night.

Gusty northwest winds late Saturday through Sunday could lead to
some uprooted trees and resultant damage and power outages due to
the saturated soil across the region.


.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...

Spotters should maintain alert status and monitor the latest
updated forecasts for potential activation requests in the coming
days.
