PARK HILLS – No matter what time it was or where you went, it was difficult to avoid getting wet on Monday. The flood gates were opened and rain poured down on the Parkland. The National Weather Service reported that Farmington received 1.64 inches of precipitation on Monday.
&#8220Even with all the rain, we aren’t showing any flash flood warnings for your area,” said Doug Tilly, a National Water Service meteorologist. &#8220These showers are pretty normal for this time of the year. We had a low pressure system in Arkansas that produced all the moisture in Missouri yesterday. It was a slow moving front which caused the rain to last all day long.”
Tilly said the Parkland could be in for some more rain and possible thunderstorms on Wednesday.
&#8220Temperatures are going to climb back into the 80s on Wednesday,” Tilly said. &#8220Any time you go from cooler temperatures to warmer the temperatures, the atmosphere becomes unstable. The best chance for showers and thunderstorms will come during the evening hours on Wednesday.”
Tilly said temperatures will creep back down into the upper 50s by Thursday.
&#8220It looks like more rain for Saturday,” Tilly said. &#8220It could be another day like Monday with showers all day long. Saturday morning will most likely produce heavy rain with it tapering off throughout the day.”
Tilly said temperatures will continue a downward spiral into next week with highs in the upper 50s.
