We are looking at heavy rains for the area thru this Saturday. The National Weather Service in St. Louis says a front will stall over the area late this week at the same time the remnants of Tropical Storm Gordon will move over the central United States. This will bring periods of rain with the potential for several inches of rain from Thursday into the weekend. There is the potential for heavy rainfall into the weekend which could bring flooding to parts of the area. There is some uncertainty with the prediction, so there could be some changes in the forecast rainfall over the next couple of days.
