St. Louis, MO – Severe thunderstorms and scorching temperatures are forecasted for the Eastern Missouri region on Thursday, posing significant weather threats.

According to the US National Weather Service, strong to severe thunderstorms are anticipated Thursday afternoon and evening, particularly along and north of Interstate 70. The storms are expected to bring large hail and damaging wind gusts, creating hazardous conditions. Residents are advised to stay informed about weather updates and to know the location of their nearest safe place in case severe weather strikes.

In addition to the storm threat, Eastern Missouri will experience a sharp rise in temperatures. After a mild start to the week, the region will see summer-like temperatures soaring well above average.

Precautionary measures, such as securing outdoor items and staying hydrated, are essential. As Thursday approaches, staying updated with the latest weather forecasts and advisories will be crucial for ensuring safety during these severe weather conditions.
