ST. LOUIS - Scattered storms north of St. Louis this afternoon have produced gusty winds and some hail.

Isolated hail and gusty winds will be possible until these storms weaken by later this evening. The best chances for storms to impact the metro area would be during and right after the evening rush hour. Later tonight, the storms should die.

Heat then becomes the focus heading into the weekend. A head advisory is in effect for the St. Louis metro area starting at Friday afternoon through Sunday evening.
