(KTVI)-Thunderstorms are expected across portions of eastern Missouri and southwest Illinois this afternoon and early this evening. Some of these storms may be strong to severe, bringing the threat of large hail and damaging wind gusts. A Severe Thunderstorm Watch has been issued for much for the FOX 2 viewing area. A watch means conditions are favorable for the development of severe storms.
The rain and storm threat will move off to the east by this evening. More rain chances return to St. Louis for Mother’s Day on Sunday.
