Some radar estimates are showing as much as 5" of rain in some locations of southeast Missouri. In the past 24 hours (7am Thursday - 7am Friday) we have officially picked up:
- Poplar Bluff, Missouri Aiport - 2.55"
- Cape Girardeau, Missouri Airport - 1.61"
- Paducah, Kentucky Airport - 0.89"
- Carbondale, Illinois Airport - 0.83"
First here is a look at the NAM forecast model. It is indicating an additional 0.60" of rain for Cape Girardeau.
Here is a look at the GFS forecast model. This model is indicating an additional 0.69" of rain for Cape Girardeau.
I'm kind of amazed that the models have such consistency. Usually models will be a little more off.
