Flash Flood Watch Cancelled for Portion of NE Mo
The Flash Flood Watch for portions of west central Illinois and northeast Missouri has been cancelled. While additional rainfall is expected , the focus for heavy rainfall has shifted to the south. Therefore, the threat for additional flash flooding
over northeast Missouri and west-central Illinois has diminished.
Further south, additional heavy rain is expected to impact portions of east-central and southeast Missouri, as well as southwest Illinois.
