After a couple of rounds of thunderstorms passed thru the area last night, we are looking at the potential for some strong to severe storms to head our way later on today. Showers and thunderstorms are likely for a good amount of the day today with a high of 71. It will be windy again, with winds gusting out of the south up to 30 miles per hour. The National Weather Service in St. Louis says to look for scattered showers and thunderstorms today ahead of a cold front. A few stronger storms are possible this afternoon, especially in southwest and southern IL. Overnight low for our area will be 41 for tonight and then much cooler temps on Sunday, with highs just in the upper 40s.
