(KMOV) – While we won’t get snow as seen several times this year, there is a chance the St. Louis area could be hit with some severe storms on Thursday.

A wave of rain moved through the St. Louis area Thursday morning as temperatures lingered around the 40-degree mark.

Temperatures will rise to the mid-50s by 12 p.m. with a chance for a spot shower or two.

Conditions will become windier as the afternoon rolls on, with temperatures rising to the 60s by about 3 p.m.

“There’s going to be lots of dry time today and it will be very windy in the afternoon,” said News 4 Meteorologist Kent Ehrhardt.

Storms are expected to develop Thursday evening, and some of them could be severe.

“We’re on guard for the potential that some of those storms later this evening and tonight could become severe,” said Ehrhardt.

The risk for high winds, possible hail and an isolated tornado is slightly higher in central and southern Missouri.

There’s only a slight risk for those conditions in the St. Louis area. The storms will move east of the area after midnight.

 

Temperatures on Friday are forecasted to be in the mid 50s under partly cloudy conditions. There’s a chance for rain in the late evening mostly south of St. Louis.
