( – While one round of storms has moved through the area, another bout of severe storms is expected to hit the St. Louis region early Tuesday evening.

News 4’s Kent Ehrhardt said the morning commute will be affected by standing water on roads. He said additional sprinkles are still possible through the morning hours as temperatures reach the 60s.

But scattered storms are expected to develop again sometime Tuesday afternoon or evening.

“Once again some of these storms may be severe,” Ehrhardt said. “The severe threat appears slightly lower compared to Monday, but will need to be monitored for a threat of wind, hail and isolated tornadoes.”

Ehrhardt said early indications showed the threat of severe storms may hold off until later in the evening, though that could change.

“A chance of showers and storms may extend into the late night hours. Make sure to get an update before heading to bed tonight,” he said.
