HYDROLOGIC OUTLOOK
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE ST LOUIS MO
511 AM CDT MON JUN 15 2015

...HEAVY RAINFALL COULD BRING SIGNIFICANT FLOODING THIS WEEK...

A SERIES OF UPPER LEVEL DISTURBANCES AND A SLOW MOVING SURFACE
FRONT WILL INTERACT WITH VERY MOIST AIR TO PRODUCE SEVERAL ROUNDS
OF HEAVY RAINFALL PRODUCING THUNDERSTORMS THROUGH THE MIDDLE OF
THE WEEK.

BY WEDNESDAY NIGHT...A WIDESPREAD THREE TO FIVE INCHES OF RAIN
ACROSS OUR REGION IS POSSIBLE...WITH LOCALLY HIGHER AMOUNTS. AS
IT STANDS NOW...MUCH OF THIS RAINFALL IS EXPECTED TO FALL DURING
THE FINAL DAY OF THIS WET PERIOD WHEN THE GROUND SHOULD ALREADY BE
SATURATED FROM PREVIOUS RAINFALL.

IF THE FORECAST RAINFALL IS REALIZED...THE RESULT WILL NOT ONLY
BE NEW FLOODING BUT ALSO ENHANCE ALREADY FORECAST FLOODING...NOTABLY
ON THE MISSOURI RIVER...WHERE SEVERAL POINTS COULD RISE TO
MODERATE OR EVEN MAJOR FLOOD LEVELS.

THESE EXTENDED RAINFALL FORECASTS ARE LIKELY TO CHANGE...
NEVERTHELESS...THEY WARRANT CLOSE ATTENTION BY THOSE WHO HAVE
INTERESTS ALONG STREAMS AND RIVERS.
