Columbia is host to some college football action Saturday, as the Missouri Tigers take on Southeast Louisiana State in the season opener. Both teams can talk about Hurricane Isaac.
At 654PM, CT, Columbia was reporting a temperature of 94 degrees with sunny skies. Easterly flow has already begun in response to Tropical Depression Isaac, which is inundating Louisiana and Arkansas, is centered near Ruston, Louisiana and is bleeding northwest, but is soon to be shunted back to the east by a remnant boundary through the Ohio Valley.
Rain will move into Columbia on a feeder band tomorrow after sunrise, and start the day with heavy rain and thunderstorms. Isaac will do his most rapid collapsing over western Missouri over the next 24 hours. Those initial heavy rain and thunderstorms will become steady rain with fairly breezy conditions. Initially, the the showers and storms may be coupled with a tornado threat, but that will abate later in the period.
