Flash Flooding Expected Again Tonight in the St. Louis Area

Our collective prayers have gone unheard, apparently

Even more potential for flash flooding is heading into St. Louis this afternoon.

The National Weather Service of St. Louis has issued a flood watch starting at 4 p.m. today. Up to 5 inches of rain is expected in the St. Louis area and east of the St. Louis area and “isolated flash flooding is likely.”


KMOV meteorologist Steve Templeton says slow-moving storms are headed into the area and that some places could be hit by multiple storms. Those areas can expect 3 to 5 inches of rain.


Those of us with leaky basements and nearby roads prone to flooding should keep an eye out yet again as St. Louis continues to vacillate between dangerous heat and dangerous flooding.

Keep an eye on the National Weather Service website for up-to-the-minute information.
