National Weather Service Predicts Heavy Rains This Week [Forecast]
It's going to be a potentially soggy week. The National Weather Service says the WBKR listening area could get two bouts of heavy rain between Monday and next Sunday. Some areas could see over a half foot of rain.
According to the National Weather Service:
Two periods of concern will be late Tuesday through Wednesday, then again late in the week into next weekend. Several inches of rainfall are forecast, with the bulls-eye right now aimed at portions of southeast Missouri and southern Illinois. The anticipated heavy rainfall will be spread out over several days. This kind of scenario favors flooding of low land, poor drainage areas. It should also cause rises on area rivers and their tributaries and exacerbate on-going river flooding along the Ohio and Green Rivers.
