(KMOV) – A massive area of showers that hit the St. Louis area overnight is expected to hang around through most of Tuesday, according to News 4 Meteorologist Kent Ehrhardt.
The day began with showers associated with a low pressure system moving from east to west from Illinois toward Missouri.
Ehrhardt said as the day goes on the system will continue to swirl towards St. Louis and the area to the west.
“It’s going to be cloudy and wet as the low pressure system moves right over our area,” he said. “Clouds and rain should keep temperatures in the mid 70s.”
Tuesday night will bring more chances for a shower or two, with unseasonably cool conditions.
On Wednesday, we’ll see warmer weather with a shot for rain mainly in the early part of the day.
The Fourth of July is expected to be partly cloudy with little, if any, rain. Humidity should be moderate with warm conditions.
