Flash Flood Warnings in effect for North Texas

Tropical downpours, blinding at times developed during the heating of the day and have aligned along and near a stalled front.

"Locally heavy rainfall of 1" to 2" has already occurred by late Thursday afternoon with bulls-eyes in northern Hendricks county and most of Hancock county.

A widespread soaking rain is forecast for our part of Missouri and IL for the start of the weekend with scattered thunderstorms continuing to move in this afternoon.

The front that has stalled over central IN will be the focus for additional showers and thunderstorms on Friday. Near Pensacola, Florida, more than a foot of rain has fallen in the last few days.

Even more rain is expected as Gordon's moisture is expected to continue interacting with a Midwest cold front.

"These higher amounts will likely be just north of Lakes Erie and Ontario", the statement said.
Clouds will gradually decrease during the afternoon and evening hours, with highs topping out in the low-70s.

The remnants of Tropical Depression Gordon are expected to drop heavy rain across much of Missouri through the weekend, creating a risk of flooding and flash-flooding. Flooding is possible along regional streams and creeks, as well as in roadways and low-lying areas. Stay alert and DO NOT DRIVE through high water.
