ST. LOUIS (KSDK) - It was a loud and bright morning across the viewing area Wednesday as thunderstorms rolled through packing lots of lightning, small hail, strong winds, and heavy rainfall.
Wind-downed trees were located in Florissant, Missouri. Heavy rain led to flood warnings for portions of Missouri and Illinois.
Parts of Franklin County saw over four inches of rain this morning, prompting a flood warning for western parts of the county until 1:30 p.m. this afternoon.
Vandalia, Illinois saw 3.40" of rain in under 2 hours. Bond, Fayette, and Montgomery counties are under a flood warning until 2:30 p.m.
A cold front will push through the area this afternoon and will likely bring another round of showers and storms to the St. Louis area. The storms from the morning hours will affect where and when these storms develop. At this point areas south and southeast of St. Louis have the greatest chance to see additional storms mainly between noon and 4 p.m. We are not expecting widespread severe weather, however some storms may pack gusty winds, small hail and heavy rainfall.
