Soaking Rain Expected Through Tonight

A soaking rain is expected today into tonight over much of the region as the remnants of Hurricane Gustav track from Arkansas to near Chicago.  Rainfall amounts of 2 of 4 inches are likely east of the Mississippi River, with lesser amounts to the west.  This is expected to cause some minor to moderate within bank rises on smaller rivers and streams. The rain may also cause some ponding of water in low lying areas, especially in western Illinois where the heaviest rain is expected.
