(KPLR) - The persistent subtropical supply of moisture will remain though midweek.  While severe weather will remain across the lower Mississippi River and Tennessee Valleys the next couple days, periods of rain are expected across portions of the Midwest through Wednesday.

Rainfall amounts near an inch will be common and put a small dent in the drought across the eastern plains and western Missouri.  Only subtle changes in the overall pattern are expected this week, with below normal temperatures into Wednesday.
