Flash Flood Watch Extended

After a brief lull in the rain, the Ozarks can expect another storm system to impact the region this evening through tomorrow. As a result, the National Weather Service has extended the Flash Flood Watch through Wednesday afternoon for most of Southwest Missouri along and south of I-44.

Flooding is the biggest killer in the Ozarks. The region has numerous low water crossings and the terrain enhances the flash flooding potential.

With the threat of more heavy rain later today: You should stay tuned to local weather forecasts. Make sure your NOAA All Hazards Radio is on and backed up by battery. If you don't own a NOAA All Hazards Radio, you should. Click the link for a previous blog post on selecting one.
