ST. LOUIS – Severe weather is pushing east and most threats are starting to clear around the St. Louis region.

Southern Missouri dealt with more extreme threats than the St. Louis region. A tornado ripped through Bollinger County, nearly two hours south, and struck the village of Glenallen. Authorities have confirmed multiple fatalities and injuries in that tornado.

For the St. Louis metro, early Wednesday morning thunderstorms were right on track. Some were more isolated or severe than others.

Threats of damaging winds, large hail, and tornadoes are expected out of Missouri and much of the Metro East by lunchtime.

A Tornado Watch had been issued for St. Francois, Randolph, Madison, Ste. Genevieve, Iron, and Reynolds Counties until 9 a.m. Many counties near St. Louis were also under a Severe Thunderstorm Watch until 10 a.m.

Gusty winds and falling temperatures Wednesday will mean temperatures in the 50s by early evening. Sunny and 50s expected Thursday before we warm up towards the weekend.

Outlook for Easter Sunday looks nice. There is a slight chance of showers Sunday night into Monday.
