Although Isaac has moved well inland over the past few days, the storm continues to produce copious amounts of rainfall.  The remnants of the tropical system, combined with a flow of moisture from the Gulf of Mexico, will continue to produce additional heavy rainfall through the remainder of the holiday weekend from the Mississippi River valley into the Ohio valley.

Additional rainfall of over six inches will still be possible as the storm tracks through Missouri, Kentucky, Tennessee, Illinois, Indiana, Ohio, West Virginia and Pennsylvania.

We will see some rainfall from Isaac for the first half of the coming week.  Local rainfall amounts will not be that heavy.

Rain totals from 8 a.m. August 29 to 8 a.m. August 30

Rain totals from 8 a.m. August 30 to 8 a.m. August 31:

Rainfall totals from 8 a.m. Friday, August 31 to 8 a.m. Saturday, September 1:
