April showers were really coming down the last weekend of April. Before that big rainfall, Springfield and the surrounding areas were at a deficit for rain.

The Springfield-Branson Airport measured exactly 5 inches of rain in a 3 day time frame.  Springfield is now about a third of an inch of rain ahead for the year of 2024.

Springfield wasn’t the only city to get the big rainfall.  It was an historical rainfall from Nevada, Mo. to Fort Scott, Ks. with radar estimates for a 5 day time span, at 18 inches!

More rain is coming! Chances of rain kick in on Wednesday through the weekend.
