Continued rain expected

Bring the barbecue grill inside this Memorial Day. After already seeing 1.5 inches of rain in a 24-hour period last week, more rain and storms are predicted throughout this week and over the holiday weekend. This includes enough rainfall to bring the Missouri River above flood levels in Gasconade County and Hermann.

Forecasters at the National Weather Service say that while major flooding isn’t likely, it is possible if this weather pattern of rain and storms continues for the next few weeks.

But don’t cancel your weekend plans yet. The National Weather Service said it is too early to predict if the rain on Friday and Saturday will be heavy enough to cancel events such as Salute to Veterans air show.

The Missouri River is expected to rise as much as a foot above flood levels in mid-Missouri, but river levels are expected to fall again after the weekend.
