St. Louis, MO – Severe thunderstorms are set to batter parts of south-central and southeast Missouri this evening, with up to 5 inches of rain expected in some areas. These storms, which could bring large hail and damaging winds, pose a significant threat to the region.

According to the National Weather Service in St. Louis, the most severe weather is anticipated in southeast Missouri between 6 p.m. and midnight. The intense rainfall could lead to flash flooding overnight into Sunday morning. Very localized rainfall totals of 3 to 5 inches are possible, primarily in southeast Missouri and points westward.

The National Weather Service advises residents to stay vigilant and avoid driving on flooded roads. “Turn around, don’t drown” is the key message to prevent potential water-related accidents. The flash flooding threat is heightened due to the anticipated heavy downpours, which could quickly inundate low-lying areas and roadways.

Residents are encouraged to monitor local weather updates and take necessary precautions to ensure their safety. As the storms approach, it’s crucial to have a plan in place and be prepared to seek shelter if conditions worsen. Stay informed and stay safe as Missouri braces for a potentially dangerous weather event.
