ST. LOUIS, MO (KTVI) – Thunderstorms are likely this afternoon across the entire area. We could see a few smaller and weaker storms anytime after 1pm. The coverage of storms will increase after 4pm. Early this evening a band of storms will form up over central Missouri and travel east toward the Mississippi River.

As for the severe weather threat. It is possible a couple of storms could reach severe levels with gusty winds and hail north of I-70. However, the greatest risk of more concentrated strong and severe storms will be from St. Louis to the south. Damaging winds and hail will be the primary concern. A couple of tornadoes cannot be ruled out, especially along and south of a Salem, MO to Sparta, IL line.
