Weekend rainfall to hit Oklahoma, central Missouri and Illinois

Eric Snodgrass
Senior Atmospheric Scientist

Overnight weather forecast models are in disagreement over the location of the heaviest rain this weekend. The long-range European model (ECMWF) and US model (GFS) agree that the heaviest rain will extend from Oklahoma through central Missouri and into central Illinois. The latest short-range US model (NAM) takes the heaviest rainfall farther north and west.
