By the middle part of the week is when we'll see our next thunderstorm threat, but fortunately most of the flooding should be cleared up by then.

The weather service states there are limited risks for severe thunderstorms and flash flooding.

Ruckel said emergency shelters can be activated on short notice should the need arise and added road crews will be on standby to make any emergency repairs to roadways, culverts and bridges, if needed.

Craighead County officials are on standby for emergencies in Randolph County, where a levee on the Black River breached previous year and hasn't been repaired, said Tony Thomas, an assistant to County Judge Ed Hill. The EOC helps divert those calls which are not life-threatening away from 911 dispatchers and still provide residents with timely information.

"We've got some drizzle and fog in some areas this morning, but it'll dry out by afternoon", said Sara Pampreen, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in White Lake Township. A strong cold front moves through by Friday, dropping highs to around the 50-degree mark. High temperatures rise to the lower to middle 60s. "Large hail, damaging winds and a few tornadoes will be possible".

The rain should become fairly widespread across the region this afternoon, with high temperatures mostly in the 40s.

Another one to two inches will be possible through 10PM Saturday evening.

Roads in flood-prone locations and low-lying areas will be susceptible to flooding, so please be very cautious while driving. Specifically, Florence was deluged with upwards of 2 inches, triggering some morning flooding in the city, while Athens received close to an inch, he said.
