National Weather Service On Rain And Drought

(St. Louis) After a hot and dry start to summer in southeast Missouri, things have turned around and it’s been very wet the last couple of weeks. Jon Carney is a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in St. Louis. We asked him if this means that concerns over drought-like conditions have subsided.

The weather forecast from the National Weather Service does include at least a chance of rain through Wednesday. We’ve recorded close to six inches of rain here at the radio station since the last week of July.
