Suchan Says: Back to Work Tuesday Rain

Showers and thunderstorms will be a part of the overnight forecast into the morning commute.  It appears the zone of heaviest rainfall tonight will fall in northern Missouri where in excess of 2″ of rain locally is likely.  A Flash Flood Watch is in effect for far northern Missouri tonight.

Highlighted region up north favored for showers and storm development overnight

Tuesday is a fairly cloudy day with occasional showers or thunderstorms possible.  I do not expect a big severe weather risk for the area although I couldn’t rule out a stronger storm or two especially in the morning in northern Missouri where a few hail producing storms could be ongoing by daybreak.

Later in the day the strongest storms will be in southern parts of the area or even south of our viewing region where more favorable conditions will be in place for heavy storms.

Rainfall amounts across the area will range from a general .50″ to near 2.00″ or more (especially in northern Missouri tonight)

Temperatures through the day will struggle up into the lower 80s

Wednesday will bring abundant sunshine back into the area along with comfortable temperatures in the 70s to lower 80s!!

Tuesday Morning:  Chance of showers or a t-storm through sunrise
