Episode Narrative A warm front slowly lifted northward from central Missouri into eastern Iowa and northern Illinois May 12th and 13th. Several rounds of showers and thunderstorms moved across the area producing widespread torrential rains and some hail. As a result of the heavy rains, flash flooding was common. There were two corridors of heavy rain; one across Highway 20 with amounts around 2 to 3 inches and a second heavier corridor of 2 to 6 inches from Memphis, Missouri to near Geneseo, Illinois. Temperatures in the upper 40s to middle 60s on May 12 continued to rise during the early morning hours May 13, reaching into the lower 50s to upper 60s by daybreak.
Event Narrative Heavy rains resulted in Camp Creek flooding the intersection of Highway 9 and Highway 94 east of Colusa, IL during the morning of May 13.
