Rain forecast to become heavier as Friday unfolds

Friday, August 31, 2012 | 9:49 a.m. CDT

COLUMBIA — An initial wave of rain began pushing into the Columbia area Friday morning from the remnants of Hurricane Isaac. Rain was forecast to increase in intensity later in the day and become heavy across much of the area Friday night.

The National Weather Service in St. Louis, in a hydrological outlook issued at 4:09 a.m. Friday, called for periods of heavy rain to continue on Saturday with lighter rain Saturday night.

"Due to the expected slow movement of the system and amount of moisture it will be able to pull into the Central U.S., widespread rainfall totals of 3 to 5 inches are anticipated and higher amounts are possible," according to the outlook.
