(KMOV) – Another massive weather system swept through the state overnight, causing widespread flooding in some portions of Missouri and setting the St. Louis area up for what looks to be a wet Wednesday.
Heavy rains fell again in waterlogged areas of south-central Missouri, causing power outages and some evacuations. Police said they also believe they found the body of a woman whose 4-year-old son was swept away by flooding waters on Tuesday.
That heavy rain and flooding continued over the southern portion of the News 4 viewing area through the morning.
News 4 Meteorologist Kent Ehrhardt said that front will move through the St. Louis area during the afternoon, generating some thunderstorms and showers throughout the region.
“Isolated thunderstorms are possible in the Metro area, becoming more scattered as we get into the afternoon hours as a front approaches,” Ehrhardt said.
Those chances for showers and storms will continue to linger through the evening commute and overnight hours.
Tomorrow, residents in the News 4 viewing area can expect a cloudy and cooler day with a chance of storms and a high temperature near 80 degrees.
“Most of the rain looks like it wants to be south of the Metro area,” Ehrhardt said.
