(KMOV) – A series of thunderstorms swept through parts of the St. Louis area on Tuesday and more are expected to possibly develop as the day wears on.
The storms Tuesday morning moved from west to east across mainly the northern portion of News 4 viewing area.
“A few heavier storms fired in the western part of the metro area,” said News 4 Meteorologist Steve Templeton. “There was a quick downpour with frequent lightning in isolated areas where these storms run through.”
Tuesday afternoon is expected to see temperatures reach the mid-80s as more storms could form in the area.
“The area of rain and thunderstorms will slowly exit the News 4 coverage area by 2 p.m.,” said Templeton.
But scattered storms could still strike after that.
“It’s going to be warm, windy and humid with a slight chance for a shower or thunderstorm developing in the afternoon to early evening,” News 4 Meteorologist Kent Ehrhardt said.
Skies are expected to clear up by Tuesday night with mild and humid conditions.
The clear conditions should stay around until Thursday when more scattered showers are likely to hit the region.
