Increased chance of flash flooding through today, August 17

August 17, 2009

Several strong thunderstorms are expected to roll through this morning, with rain continuing to fall through the morning behind it. With the ground already partially saturated by 1.09″ of rain, much of this new batch of rain will convert to runoff, resulting in stream rises.

An additional 1-2″ of rain is possible by 7:00 AM. A further 1-2″ may be possible behind this system. This same system has already caused widespread 3-6″ of rain in northern Missouri, resulting in flash flooding there.

Another post will follow at or around 8:00 AM.
