ST. LOUIS, MO (KTVI) - Little change going on here on this Thursday. The southwest flow is wide open. Warm (not hot) and very humid with waves of rain and storms. Severe weather will be limited but these storms, when they happen, will be big-time rain makers. Yes, there is some dry time. But we need to be ready for rain and storms.

Then tropical storm moisture from Bill comes into play. The remains of the storm rising up and over the bi-state region. The heaviest rains from Bill are Friday and Friday night. It has slowed down slightly. The major concerns about flash flooding and flooding on the big rivers. We could see another 3-5 inches of rain before this is done.

The next dry day is coming up Saturday. Then scattered storms for Sunday. Very, very humid with all the rain.

If your thinking of a float trip this weekend, call ahead, the rivers will be wild.
