First Alert Weather:

  • A few light showers this morning
  • Most rain today should be light
  • Widespread rain and storms the rest of the week

Tuesday into Wednesday: We’ll have cooler temperatures Tuesday as widespread light rain moves in. This band will clear by early evening. Another wave of rain is expected Wednesday. This may come in the form of thunderstorms in the morning, with more showers or thunderstorms by the afternoon. Wednesday will see more afternoon dry time compared to Tuesday.

Thursday into Friday: The heaviest rain will fall Thursday into Friday. The latest timing for rain appears to be Thursday afternoon, with accumulations ramping up overnight. St. Louis is in the zone expected to see around 2″ of rainfall, with the axis of the heaviest rain (3″ +) focused south of I-44. Currently, minor flooding is possible Thursday night and Friday morning. However, if that axis of heavy rainfall shifts north, we could be looking at slightly greater flood risk. Uncertainty still exists on the exact location of the heaviest rain band.
