Possibility of flood to be augmented in central Plains, Mississippi Valley this week due to rounds of storms

For storm-weary neighborhoods in the mid-Mississippi Valley and central Plains, Mother Nature demonstrates no indications of giving any respite this week as extra rounds of heavy, flooding storms are on tap.

The pattern of weather from midweek into the beginning of the approaching weekend will turn out to be stagnant. A boundary separating pleasurable air across the Midwest from humidity and heat across the Deep South and southern Plains will serve as the train tracks along which these thunderstorm complexes are predicted to ride.

The first of these complexes may blow up in southeastern Nebraska and eastern Kansas as early as Tuesday night and track southward via eastern Oklahoma and Arkansas into Wednesday. The meteorologists anticipate a similar condition to unfold each night through Friday, with fresh rounds of storms following a similar or identical path to the previous night’s deluge.

According to a senior meteorologist, “The greatest danger of flooding will be the regions that have received heavy rainfall in recent weeks, and/or where storms have a propensity for repeating this week.”

By the time the pattern of the weather finally shifts during the 2nd half of the weekend, the majority of places from northeastern Oklahoma and eastern Kansas into southwestern Missouri and northern Arkansas will have received between four and eight inches of rain.

Residents in the hardest-hit places may observe rainfall totals reach the dual digits this week. The meteorologists even added that the greatest dangers will be from rapid small stream and urban flooding, but not flooding of the major rivers.

Record-breaking flooding resulted in disastrous monetary losses in the Mississippi Valley from this spring into the starting of the summer, and a lot of river gauges on the Mississippi just lately fell under flood phase.

Although the rainfall won’t be extensive enough to trigger new flooding worries on the Mississippi, it can make worse what are at present minor flooding matters on the Missouri River following rounds of heavy rain previous week.

As per the meteorologists, a few of the smaller tributary rivers that flow into the Missouri, Arkansas and Mississippi can go through short, moderate flooding as well. Other than flooding matters on streams and smaller rivers, the rounds of heavy rain this week can trigger flooding in regions that have poor drains and that are low-lying.

The storms may even result in airline delays at major hubs like St. Louis and Kansas City. Luckily, for the ones with outdoor plans this week, the storms are supposed to be most prevalent at night with more sprinkled activity during the daylight hours.

Still, people are supposed to be geared up to move inside when the initial clap of thunder is heard since it is at this time when you’re close enough to be hit by lightning.

After a brief reprieve in the active weather pattern to end the weekend, the meteorologists are worried that extra rounds of storms could be in the offing early next week and that the wet weather pattern may continue into the fall.
