Best chances for rain Tuesday and Wednesday

Rain chances really start to kick in Tuesday morning in the Tri-State, and continue through midday Wednesday, though forecasters noted that a few storms are possible here late Monday night, as well.

Still, one to three inches of rain are possible in the region, and locally higher amounts could occur.

Flood watch late Monday through Wednesday morning

Forecasters note that excessive runoff from Beryl-related storms could result in flooding of rivers, creeks, streams and other low-lying and flood-prone locations.

Will Beryl cause severe weather in Evansville or Henderson?
