Flood Watch until 07:00PM Thursday

The National Weather Service in Memphis has issued a

* Flood Watch for portions of Southeast Missouri and West Tennessee, including the following areas, in Southeast Missouri, Dunklin and Pemiscot. In West Tennessee, Benton, Carroll, Crockett, Decatur, Dyer, Gibson, Henderson, Henry, Lake, Madison, Obion, and Weakley.

* From Wednesday evening through Thursday evening

* A slow moving frontal boundary will bring several waves of rain and a few thunderstorms to the region Wednesday into Thursday. Storm total rainfall in the watch area is forecast to range from 3 to 4 inches, with locally higher amounts possible.

* The cumulative effect of the rain may result in flooding of low lying and flood-prone areas. Falling leaves may also clog drainage systems and impede the normal course of water runoff. In addition, some minor river flooding may eventually develop given the widespread and heavy amounts of rain over the basins.

* AFFECTED AREAS: OBION ... DYER ... HENRY ... WEAKLEY ... CROCKETT ... DECATUR ... CARROLL ... BENTON ... GIBSON ... PEMISCOT ... HENDERSON ... DUNKLIN ... LAKE ... MADISON

Instructions:

A Flood Watch means there is a potential for flooding based on current forecasts. You should monitor later forecasts and be alert for possible Flood Warnings. Those living in areas prone to flooding should be prepared to take action should flooding develop.
