We are looking at another day of heat today. We are looking at a high of 93 for today with heat index values as high as 100 for today. The St. Louis region has been under a heat advisory for the past few days—but we have avoided the heat index values needed for that designation. Meanwhile, we do have a chance of showers and thunderstorms for today, mainly before 4 pm today. The National Weather Service in St. Louis says a few strong to severe thunderstorms are possible across areas mainly southwest of our area. The NWS adds the primary threats from any storms would be damaging winds and large hail.
