We are looking at a very active weather pattern over the next few days over the area. For today we are looking at another hot and humid day with a high of 92 and a heat index value better than 100 for this afternoon. We also could see an isolated shower or thunderstorm this afternoon. Tonight it will remain steamy with a chance of showers and storms and a low only down to 75. We then have a chance of showers and thunderstorms on Thursday with a high of 85. Thursday night and Friday we’ll see showers and thunderstorms with some of the storms producing heavy rainfall over the area. The National Weather Service in St. Louis says several rounds of showers and thunderstorms are expected thru Friday night and the potential exists for 2 to 4 inches of rainfall in some area thru the end of the work week and that could lead to some localized flooding.
