ST. LOUIS (KTVI) – Wet weather has arrived in the bi-state area Monday morning.

Initially, most of the rain will be along Interstate 70 and all parts south. But in time, the moisture and precipitation will build more northward and become heavier, especially late today and tonight.

It still looks like a good soaking, with one to three inches likely by the time the event winds down Tuesday evening. Even though a thunderstorm or two will be possible Monday night and Tuesday, severe weather is not expected.

Temperatures will remain mostly in the 50s or low 60s both Monday and Tuesday.
