Large parts of rural Missouri and Illinois had between three to five inches of rainfall this weekend, according to the National Weather Service.
In St. Louis, Nation Weather Service Meteorologist Jayson Gosselin said Oakville received three and a half inches of rain, the most in the metropolitan area.
Gosselin added, though, that it will take much more rain to snap this summer’s historic drought.
