Strong-to-severe storms possible late Monday into early Tuesday

A warm up is ahead with showers and thunderstorms

A First Alert Day has been issue for Wednesday evening as a cold front arrives and may spawn some scattered thunderstorms.

A line of strong, possibly severe storms, is likely Tuesday morning.

The storms are forecast to move out of the area by midnight Thursday. An approaching storm system will push a warm front across the state overnight. Wind gusts will drop, but not much, according to the National Weather Service. The threat of severe storms is a bit higher southeast of St. Louis, a bit less NW of St. Louis. This can bring everything from high winds and severe storms, to a round of light snow.

Damaging winds and large hail will be the primary players with the storms going up. Farther north the chance for severe storms is lower with a marginal severe threat which is indicated by the green color.

Warm, moist air continues to sweep into the region with a southwest wind at the surface this afternoon ahead of a warm front.

Drivers will need to be aware of heavy rain, frequent lightning, and possible hail in the metro area early Tuesday morning between 5-7AM.

The best chances of strong storms appear to be on Tuesday, according to the National Weather Service.

Our work week will end with a dry Friday.
