More Severe Weather On the Way

ST. LOUIS (KMOX) – Tornadoes, heavy downpours and baseball-sized hail could be headed our way.

The next band of dangerous weather is expected to roll into the St. Louis area between 6 and 8 p.m. tonight.


Warning Coordination Meteorologist Jim Kramper says the southern half of Missouri will see the worst of it, and St. Louis is on the fringe of the area projected to be hit the hardest.

Still, he says St. Louis is so close that it’s important to pay attention, and heavy storms could hit the city this evening.

“It depends on where they form in advance of this front,” he says. “Potentially, we expect the really strong storms won’t move into the St. Louis area until later in the evening.”

Kramper says if the sun comes out and the temperature hits the upper 70s, it might be time to get nervous.
