    Drenching Storms Aim From St. Louis to Louisville, Memphis

    Rounds of showers and thunderstorms will bring the chance for flooding across part of the Central states through Friday.

    A low pressure system slowly moving out of the central Plains and into the Tennessee Valley will once again bring periods of showers and thunderstorms for the end of the week.

    These storms have the potential to be heavy during Thursday night from Iowa to parts of Missouri, Illinois, Tennessee, Kentucky, Arkansas and Mississippi.


    Some of these storms could produce torrential downpours, causing travel delays and flooding problems.

    Thunderstorms could develop into slow-moving complexes, which will bring as much as 2 inches of rain in a matter of hours.

    By Friday, the heaviest rain will center on Kentucky, Tennessee and the southern Appalachians and could continue to cause localized flash and urban flooding.


    Although thunderstorms will spread from the northern Plains to Florida on Friday, these storms are not expected to be severe.

    The potential for heavy rain and thunderstorms will shift eastward across the southern Appalachians and into parts of Virginia, the Carolinas and Georgia during the weekend.


    Once again, just as that of the Central states, there is the potential for flash and urban flooding problems that could impact outdoor activities and travel.
