...March 31st, 2008 Tornadoes, Severe Storms, and Flooding...

Yet another strong storm system affected the Missouri Ozarks and southeast Kansas on March 31st, 2008.  A strong cold front interacted with abundant moisture and instability already in place across the region.  This interaction produced widespread severe storms with damaging wind, large hail, and 11 confirmed tornadoes through storm surveys on April 1st and 2nd.

 In addition to the severe weather, heavy rain continued to batter the region with more flooding.  In fact, Springfield set another record for monthly precipitation at 9.38 inches of rain for the month of March surpassing the previous record of 9.09 inches set back in 1935.  This marks the second month in a row for record rainfall in Springfield.
