More rain possible this afternoon

By  | 

A nice, steady rain is moving across southern Missouri this morning, and some places have reported as much as three inches of rain! This batch of rain will gradually diminish by late this morning or early afternoon, and some sun should come out in many spots. However, a cold front will still be heading into the region and additional scattered showers and storms are likely this afternoon and evening. Due to rich moisture very heavy downpours are possible, along with localized flooding. Temperatures will be quite varied this afternoon depending on how much sun we get, but should stay mostly in the 80s.
