ST. LOUIS — Another round of heavy rain, gusty winds, and a lot of cloud-to-ground lightning is impacting the St. Louis region Saturday afternoon as a cold front continues to slowly move south across the area. These storms will continue to move east with lighter rain continuing to linger in many areas.

The St. Louis region will see on and off showers and storms into late Saturday evening, with precipitation slowly shifting southeast through the night. Some counties could see several inches of rain, hail and lightning. Due to the slow-moving nature of the cold front, multiple rounds of heavy rain may move over the same areas leading to a flash flooding concern. Severe thunderstorm warnings are also possible throughout the night.

In addition to potential flooding, as the front drops further south into more unstable air in southeast Missouri and southern Illinois, a few storms could become strong to severe. The main concern with these storms would be hail and wind.

Rain and storms will become more spotty for the metro region later Saturday evening with the main storm threat further south. Rain and a few isolated rumbles of thunder will come to an end through the evening with a few sprinkles lingering into Saturday night.
