(KMOV) – St. Louis-area residents are going to see spring-like temperatures on Tuesday, and it could be the warmest day in almost two months.
Temperatures on Tuesday started off in the low-30s, which made patches of ice still a concern in some of the outlying parts of the News 4 viewing area.
But numbers will quickly climb throughout the morning, reaching a high of about 66 degrees by 3 p.m. with breezy conditions.
“If we hit 66, it will be the warmest day since Dec. 20, a few days before Christmas,” said News 4 Meteorologist Kent Ehrhardt.
Temperatures will drop to the 30s Tuesday night under partly cloudy conditions.
Wednesday will see a high of about 50 degrees, with increasing clouds late in the day.
“As we move to Wednesday night and particularly Thursday afternoon, there’s a chance for some showers and thunderstorms,” said Ehrhardt.
In the afternoon, there’s a slight risk some of the storms could be severe from the metro area to the east and south.
