More showers and thunderstorms keep the flooding threat through the weekend


FRIDAY: We’re waking up to another quiet morning, but much like yesterday, things will become active later today. We’ll see isolated showers this morning, but the better chance of seeing more thunderstorms will be this afternoon. There is a severe threat with this batch of storms as well, with the primary threat being large hail. The more long-term threat with all of this rainfall is the flooding threat. A large portion of Mid-Missouri is under an Areal Flood Watch, with up to an additional 2 ” of rainfall possible in some locations. Low-lying areas and places with poor drainage could see some flooding developing this evening. With cloud cover throughout the day and on and off rain, temperatures don’t warm much this afternoon, only topping out near 60.

TONIGHT: Showers and thunderstorms will be ongoing during the evening and look to decrease in coverage overnight. The severe threat will have left us tonight, but flooding will stay with us for the next few days. Never try to cross a flooded roadway, but the threat is even more dangerous at night–turn around, don’t drown. As the front finally starts moving out, temperatures will begin to cool off and winds will pick up out of the north, gusting near 25 mph , creating wind chills in the low to mid 30s by the morning.

EXTENDED: Highs on Saturday will only manage to top out in the middle to upper 40s with winds continuing out of the north. We’ll see another chance of showers, with the best chance south in the viewing area. These showers will finally taper off into the afternoon and evening and we can start to dry out. Latest forecasts this morning have the Missouri River holding steady at 26 ‘ , in the moderate flood stage, throughout the weekend, as runoff rainwater moves into the river’s system. Sunshine looks to return Sunday, with temperatures pushing close to 50 in the afternoon. We start working back toward typical late March temperatures Monday and Tuesday, nearing 60.
