There is a chance we could see some severe storms move thru the area this afternoon and tonight. The National Weather Service in St. Louis says the chance for scattered showers and thunderstorms will continue across the area through this afternoon and evening. Some of the storms could be strong to severe, with isolated damaging wind gusts being the main threat. Frequent lightning and downpours are also possible. In the National Weather Service’s Situation Report it says the confidence of some isolated severe storms is strongest to our south, but the threat does remain for our area. The NWS says any severe storms would likely appear between now and 9 pm.
