Heavy rain began to develop over southern Missouri on the night of the 27th, continuing throughout the morning of the 28th, with additional heavy rain during the late night of the 28th into the early morning of the 29th. Several inches of rainfall in a short period of time early on the 28th led to flash flooding and significant quick rises on a few area rivers and streams. A severe line segment developed during the morning of the 28th over southwest Missouri which pushed east across southern Missouri during the morning. Mesovorticies within the line segment led to several brief tornado touchdowns and some wind damage.
