(KTVI)- As forecasted, scattered thunderstorms developed right across the heart of the St. Louis region in the afternoon heat. While they are not severe, the storms are bringing heavy rain, lightning, and some small hail.
The storms that have formed aren’t moving much, staying over an area for some time. Be aware of ponding on area roads and look out for small streams and creeks filling quickly.
The storm threat fades this evening and the sun begins to set.
