Suchan Says: 2:45am Storm Update

Heaviest storms in northern Missouri... weaker showers and a few rumbles of thunder further south

Heaviest storms in northern Missouri… weaker showers and a few rumbles of thunder further south

The severe risk has diminished quite a bit but the all too familiar flooding concern is back.  Flash flooding is ongoing in many areas in northern Missouri (north of Highway 36) where storms have been training across the same area with very high rainfall rates.  Radar estimates show a wide zone of 3 to 6 inches of rain or locally more!  In fact, one report in Stanberry, MO has 8 inches of rain!

Rain will continue in northern Missouri through daybreak albeit the intensity should gradually decrease.  But some areas could see another 1 to 2 or so inches of rain on top of what has already fallen.

Further south, a few spotty showers or a weak thunderstorm will remain possible down to about I-70 through sunrise but flooding concerns are much lower and there isn’t much of a severe weather risk.

Thursday afternoon will bring hot sunshine with a 20% chance of an isolated shower or t-storm with highs into the lower 90s.
