Posted: Aug 10, 2020 9:54 AM

We are drying out but we are also heating up across the region this afternoon. In fact, portions of the Tri-State (Saline and Hamilton, IL counties) is under a Heat Advisory until 7 PM. The combination of heat and humidity will make it feel closer to the century mark between the hours of noon and 7 PM.

When it comes to the skies above we will be experiencing a mixture of sun and clouds through the daylight hours. Most of the day should remain rain-free with southwest winds keep the tropical-like airmass in place.

The accumulated heat and humidity we will gain throughout the afternoon will interact with an inbound cold front that will spark out storm chances tonight. As of 9 AM today, the Storm Prediction Center has placed a "1" and "2" under the Threat Index for isolated to scattered chances of seeing severe thunderstorms.

Storms will begin to roll into the region by 11 PM tonight impacting our northern-most communities first. These storms will migrate from north to south. By 1 AM the line of storms will by hitting the metro area and continue to push southward. The storms will ultimately exit the region by 5 AM. Some of the stronger storms that do develop could produce frequent lightning and strong wind gust as high as 60 MPH.
