Posted: Updated:

ST. LOUIS, Mo. (KMOV.com) -- More rain will spread into the region from south to north through the late afternoon and evening hours. Showers and a few storms are possible this evening into the overnight.

Light to moderate rain showers will likely impact our area through early Thursday afternoon. Rain chances shift south and southeast with the frontal boundary Thursday afternoon and evening.

A Flash Flood Watch remains in effect for much of the News 4 viewing area until Thursday afternoon. Litchfield, over to Jerseyville, IL, Troy, Warrenton, Gasconade and Rolla, MO have been dropped out of the watch. These areas will likely see less than a new inch of rainfall. It now appears that heavier rain will fall south of I-44 in Missouri and I-70 in Illinois.

The updated rainfall forecast shows around 2" or less for St. Louis, with slightly higher totals of 1.5" to 3" along a line from Farmington, MO to Sparta, IL. Heavier totals from 2" to 4" are now expected south and southeast of a line from Farmington, MO to Sparta, IL to Mt. Vernon, IL.

A few showers are possible south and southeast of the Metro area during the day on Friday closer to the front, but Friday's forecast now looks largely dry. The St. Louis area will have another chance of rain and storms Saturday and Sunday, with an additional half to one and a half inches of rainfall. 

We’re not expecting any severe weather with the storms this week.
