(KMOV) – Monday started off with rainy conditions in the St. Louis area, a trend that’s expected to hang around for much of the week.
Heavy rain Monday morning pounded most of the southern portions of the viewing area, causing a flash flood watch to be issued for Phelps County through 7 a.m. Tuesday.
“There’s a possibility that as this rain adds up you could see some localized flooding, so keep that in mind throughout the day,” said News 4 Meteorologist Kent Ehrhardt
Ehrhardt said as the system moves toward the St. Louis area it appears to dry up a bit.
“Still, showers and storms are possible across the entire viewing area by the afternoon,” he said.
Tuesday will bring even more chances for wet conditions.
“I think you can count on an even better rain chance through the day tomorrow into tomorrow evening as a low pressure system scoots to the south of the St. Louis area,” he said.
