Isaac Brought Much Needed Rainfall to the Ozarks

The Remnants of Isaac Brought Much Needed Rainfall

to Southeast Kansas and the Missouri Ozarks.

The remnants of Isaac brought some much needed rainfall to the area with a slow soaking rain event spread out over a two day period.  The initial outter bands of the low pressure of Isaac began early on Friday morning August 31st.  The rain event lasted through Saturday evening September 1st. Light to moderate rain showers were accompanied with Isaac's rainbands. A general one to two inches of rainfall fell during the two days with some locations seeing over 3 inches in a few heavier bands across the Missouri Ozarks. Isaac's remnants did bring some breezy conditions to the Missouri Ozarks with wind gusts up to 35 mph.  No severe weather or flooding was observed in the local area.  Tornadic activitiy was observed just to our East across the Mid-Mississippi Delta region due to Isaac's bands of thunderstorms. Here is a doppler radar estimate image of rainfall with several reports of rainfall included on this graphic.
