The severe weather threat is winding down for mid-Missouri this evening. The strong storms that rolled through tonight have become very severe as they enter the Saint Louis metro area. Severe tornado warnings were issued for both the suburbs and the city.
We did receive some heavy rain that has led to a few flash flood warnings for our area. One to two inches of rain was common, but some local areas received more than two inches. Some areas picked up more than three inches of rain, according to our doppler radar estimates. Be on the look out for water over the road, especially in low water crossing areas. Water over the road at night can be almost impossible to see.
Look for much colder temperatures to move in tonight. The rest of this week will remain cool with highs Thursday and Friday in the upper 40s and lower 50s. Temperatures will be in the low 30s Friday and Saturday morning.
The KRCG 13 Stormvision Weather team will continue to monitor the evolving storm system and provide updates as they become available.
