States in the Mississippi River valley are the most likely to benefit from the storm. Some areas are more than a foot of rain short this year. The National Weather Service predicts 2 to 6 inches of rain later this week. Heavy showers could also aid traffic on the Mississippi River, which has seen temporary closures due to low water conditions.</p> Tue, 28 Aug 2012 13:38:47 +0000 Dave Shinall & The Associated Press 21380 at http://wkms.org Isaac Brings Rain to Drought-stricken Mississippi Valley
