Most of the state has received greater than a half inch of rain over the last week, with one region along I-44 in Phelps County estimated at 5 inches (Figure 1). Year-to-date totals in the southeastern most part of Missouri are nearing the 30 inch mark, which is well above average for this time of year.

Conditions for the rest of the week will include chances of showers and possible storms throughout the state as a system in Kansas moves slowly eastward. Forecast through Friday morning estimate another 0.5 to 1 inch of rain across much of the state (Figure 2).

The system should roll through and lead to a nice Memorial Day weekend and some opportunity for soils to dry out through the early part of next week. Above normal temperatures and near-normal precipitation are expected for most of the state next week (Figure 3).
