(KTVI) - Another day of "status quo" in the forecast as the now very old cut-off low pressure remains trapped to our south with a weak cold front stationary just to our northeast. The combined flow between the two is resulting in a southeast to northwest movement to the pockets of spotty downpours this afternoon.
The primary zone is focused just south of the cold front from near Mount Vernon up into the northeast half of metro St. Louis. These storms are rotating back to the northwest and will bring periods of heavy rain and lightning to areas roughly along and northeast of line from Wentzville, Mo to downtown St. Louis down to near Sparta, IL and Mount Vernon.
Other smaller showers will be possible anywhere, but the highest risk of storms is in the zone mentioned above.
