FLASH FLOODING POSSIBLE FOR AREA
Recent rain has nearly saturated the soil of the area and it appears we are in for more rain for the next several days. The National Weather Service states that models are indicating a likelihood of persistent heavy rainfall across Missouri and Illinois through the weekend and into early next week. The soil remains nearly saturated following the heavy rain Monday and Tuesday. Flash flooding of low lying areas may occur if thunderstorms develop and move repeatedly across the same areas.
Heavy rainfall is expected through the weekend with areas south of Interstate 70 seeing the heaviest amounts. The Kaskaskia River Basin could be affected as may many river basins in Missouri.
A flash flood watch may be issued tonight and people living or traveling near creeks, steams or low-lying, flood-prone areas should monitor weather conditions closely.
