Heavy Rain / Flooding

A massive, slow moving squall line in advance of a frontal system came through around 7:00 AM CDT. Though relatively tame upon passage, it was expected to intensify further east but never really did. The copious amounts of heavy rainfall that fell throughout the day resulted in a flash flood situation affecting nearly the entire Midwest. The passage of the front has brought the rain to an end but for area residents who are dealing with flooding woes, a forecast high around 25° cooler than 24 hours ago is hardly the ideal clean up weather.

I can't get over how just a little while ago it was drought conditions there, so much so that the Missouri River traffic was limited....and now they are worrying about it overflowing the banks....
