Excessive heat warning extended to Wednesday

ST. LOUIS - Another warm night awaits as the heat advisory gets extended by one more day.

There will be a few evening storms that fade after sunset followed by partly cloudy skies and lows near 80 Tuesday night.

Wednesday, a cool front will approach but not quite make it, which means the excessive heat warning for the St. Louis metropolitan region and all points east and north will remain in effect through the evening as well as the heat advisory for the rest of the viewing area. This leaves us with highs in the mid-90s and heat indices in the triple digits, but there will likely be storms in the afternoon and evening with the potential to be strong.

COOL DOWN ST. LOUIS: Help cool down those in need

The rest of the workweek highs approach 90 with afternoon and evening storms possible Thursday and Friday. Then, Labor Day weekend arrives, and we'll have to work at enjoying it because it's a good bet Mother Nature will be less than cooperative.

Storms are possible Saturday, Sunday and Labor Day, while highs will cool slightly and drop into the mid to upper 80s.

Precautions should be taken if working outside. Wear lightweight, loose-fitting clothing and drink plenty of water. Take frequent breaks in shade or air conditioning.
