Rain helps north Missouri
The overnight rains have helped north Missouri which has been pretty dry. That’s the word from University of Missouri climatologist Pat Guinan who was on a town hall meeting this morning with other specialists, “We had, for at least the northern half of the state, the biggest rain event of the month so far.”
More rain is expected tonight and Saturday bringing more rain to an area of the state that Guinan says doesn’t need it, “There’s some locations in southern Missouri that have had over 30 inches of rain for the year. Highly unusual and one of the wettest starts to the year since 2008 which was a very wet year for the state as a whole.”
Temperatures will be warming up next week in the state and Guinan says it should also be drier.
