Earlier blog entry below…

An earlier round of storms produced quick flash flooding in Saline County, MO where 4″ to around 7″ of rain fell from two thunderstorms “training” over the same area.  We very well could see a similar episode evolve tonight for many more locations as the next round of storms is in the process of taking shape.

The Weather Prediction Center (formerly the Hydrometeorological Prediction Center) has issued a mesoscale discussion for our area tonight with likely flash flooding in the overnight forecast.  Rainfall rates could press between 2″ to 3″ / hour as a large complex of storms organize and rumble across the area.

Friday afternoon will have a lower 30% chance of a shower or weak thunderstorm then completely drying out by evening.  Saturday looks very nice and Sunday is a decent day followed by late day scattered thunderstorms (30% chance).
