New Flash Flood Watch for St. Louis area through Friday morning

Posted: Updated:

ST. LOUIS, Mo. ( –  A Flash Flood Watch is in effect for most of the St. Louis area through 10:00 a.m. Friday.

Scattered showers and thunderstorms will move back across much of the News 4 viewing area tonight. They will linger through Friday morning. Some may produce heavy rainfall.

Soils are freshly saturated from yesterday's rain and storms. Flash flooding will be a concern overnight. Severe weather is not expected.

Another slow moving front across the area Friday will trigger a few isolated showers and storms in the afternoon.  Rain chances drop off in the evening. Scattered storms are possible again Friday night into Saturday morning.

Skies will be partly cloudy on Saturday afternoon and it will heat up quickly. Highs will be in the mid-90s with a heat index as high as 103°. We'll be watching storms just north and northeast of the News 4 viewing area. Keep an eye on the forecast in case those storms try to sneak a little farther to the south.

Sunday will be another scorcher under mostly sunny skies. Highs will be back in the mid-90s with a heat index in the low 100s. That same forecast holds for Monday. It is possible a heat advisory will be issued over the weekend into Monday.
