The effect of Tropical Depression Gordon on Missouri could vary depending on region.
A Flash Flood Watch is in effect for most of the state from noon Friday through Midnight Saturday night.
Meteorologist Jeff Raberding with the National Weather Service in Springfield tells Missourinet the heaviest rainfall in southern Missouri will take place from Friday night into Saturday morning. Raberding advises drivers in southwest Missouri to be on the lookout for road closures and low-lying water areas.
Meteorologist Jared Leighton with the National Weather Service in Pleasant Hill says flooding will probably pose fewer problems in southwest Missouri because the region is coming out of a drought.
Gordon entered the country on the gulf coast Tuesday as a tropical storm and was downgraded to a tropical depression shortly after.
