(KMOV) – The St. Louis area will be under a threat of rain and storms on Tuesday with temperatures expected to be slightly lower than what we saw to start the week.

A slower moving cold front moved through the St. Louis metro area Tuesday morning, bringing with it some unexpected rain that will disappear as the system shrinks and falls apart.

A few more storms will pop-up near and south of St. Louis city Tuesday afternoon.

“Odds for an afternoon storm are much better south, in areas like Farmington, Mo. to Sparta, Ill.,” But with this slower speed on our system, I can’t rule out a quick afternoon shower moving through St. Louis.”

Despite the slower moving frontal system, Templeton expects humidity to slowly fall, ushering in 60-degree temperatures Tuesday night.


Wednesday’s conditions will be unseasonably mild with an expected high of 77 degrees.
