...SLOWLY DECREASING THUNDERSTORM ACTIVITY THROUGH 10 PM CDT...
A BROKEN LINE OF SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS CONTINUE TO MOVE AND
DEVELOP TO THE SOUTHWEST BETWEEN 20 TO 25 MPH THIS EVENING. THE
RAIN WAS MOVING OVER PARTS OF THE PURCHASE AREA OF WEST KENTUCKY
AND SOUTHWEST ILLINOIS.
ANYWHERE FROM A HALF HOUR TO AN HOUR AHEAD OF THE SHOWERS AND
THUNDERSTORMS...A LINE OF GUSTY WINDS RANGING FROM 25 MPH TO
LOCALLY 50 MPH WAS NOTED EARLY THIS EVENING.
AS THE EVENING PROGRESSES...BOTH THE WIND GUSTS AND FORWARD
MOVEMENT OF THE SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS WILL DECREASE.
SOME LOCATIONS...ESPECIALLY OVER THE PURCHASE AREA OF WEST
KENTUCKY...MAY RECEIVE THREE QUARTERS TO LOCALLY ONE AND A
QUARTER INCHES OF RAIN...BEFORE THE RAIN LESSENS IN COVERAGE AND
INTENSITY.
GIVEN THE WET GROUND AND OTHER FACTORS...SOME TREES AND TREE
LIMBS MAY TOPPLE DUE TO THE GUSTY WINDS.
DANGEROUS LIGHTNING WILL STILL BE A FACTOR...SO STAY INDOORS UNTIL
THE STORMS HAVE WELL MOVED AWAY FROM YOUR AREA.
THE SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS SHOULD GRADUALLY SLOW DOWN AND STALL
OVER PARTS OF SOUTHEAST MISSOURI AND SOUTHWEST KENTUCKY NEAR THE
MISSISSIPPI RIVER BEFORE 10 AM CDT.
