Multiple rounds of storms, some severe, possible through early Monday

For the rest of the weekend, multiple rounds of thunderstorms are expected throughout the area from Sunday into early Monday. There’s a lot of moving parts to this forecast, so stay tuned for more updates leading up to these events.

The Storm Prediction Center has our entire area under a Slight (Level 2 of 5) risk for Sunday and the potential for strong to severe storms.

Some storms may be severe, with damaging winds and flooding the primary hazards. Particularly by Sunday night, the concern for flash flooding looks to be at its highest.

One of the first rounds will be possible Sunday morning, mainly seen throughout southeast Missouri.

Another chance will last throughout the afternoon, when there’s a better chance for the aforementioned strong to severe storms to be seen throughout the afternoon and evening.

Sun Afternoon

With these storms, the peak flash flooding threat will most likely happen with another round of storms possible Sunday night into Monday. The National Weather Service has been speaking about a possible Flood Watch to be issued in the near future for this timeframe, so we’ll be on the lookout for that.

Sun Night

With the potential for flash flooding and sticky, high dew point temperatures into Monday, the Skeeter Meter will be in the “High” category. Then with the cold front sweeping our moisture away and some breezy conditions, we’ll drop back into the “Medium” category for Tuesday.

Tuesday should be quite pleasant in terms of summer conditions in our neck of the woods. Far less humidity and cooler temperatures expected, with overnight lows possibly dropping into the upper 50s!

Next week we’ll take a break from a lot of the action too, with many sunny days ahead.
