You will likely be dodging some raindrops for your lunch time plans today. Can’t rule out a few lightning strikes as we progress into the afternoon hours. Otherwise a steady rain continues across much of the area with cool temperatures in the 70s.
A Flash Flood Watch is in effect for portions of southeast Missouri, extreme southern Illinois, and far west Kentucky today through Tuesday, when the heaviest and greatest coverage of rain is expected. More localized flooding is possible from now through mid week as the remnants of Barry impact the region.
Barry will bring a significant flood threat to our area over the next 72 hours. Now is the time to prepare.
