ST. LOUIS, MO (KTVI) - Severe weather is moving through the viewing area.
These storms will be capable of producing damaging winds, large hail and possibly a couple of quick moving "spin-up" tornadoes. In addition to the severe threat, flash flooding will be possible in areas that see repeat rounds of storms.
A slow moving storm system will spread multiple waves of thunderstorms into the Bi-State area through Saturday. The next wave is revving up for late Thursday afternoon into the night, with another possible wave into Friday morning.
The greatest risk for severe storms and tornadoes will be from far southwest Missouri into Oklahoma Thursday afternoon with those storms developing/spreading northeast into the St. Louis area with time.
Storms will have the potential to produce all forms of severe weather with high winds, large hail, lots of lightning and even a few tornadoes all possible.
In addition, there is an elevated flash flood threat the next couple of days and major river flooding is becoming a concern for late this weekend into next week because of the widespread heavy rain upstream in Nebraska, Iowa and northern Missouri.
Between the waves of thunderstorms will be ample dry time and some sunshine which will help push temperatures into the 80s through Saturday.
