Remnants of Isaac to Bring Much Needed Rain - Just Not Enough

Hurricane Isaac on August 28, 2012
The remnants of Hurricane Isaac will impact the Ozarks Rain after midnight tonight, and linger throughout Saturday.  The latest information is that the Ozarks may see only two to five inches as a result.  We are much further into a drought than two to five inches.  Regardless, it will be welcome and much needed rain.  There is still a possibility for heavier rain, and with the condition of the soil, it could lead to flash flooding.

The National Weather Service has great information on Isaac, and the impact to the Ozarks. With a system like this, there is a chance for isolated severe weather and high wind gusts.  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.
