ST. LOUIS — Sunday was a hot day across the Bi-state with St. Louis Lambert reaching a record high temperatures of 93 degrees. Storms continued to pop up on the Illinois side of the river through the day. In fact, the Metro East had several thousand people without power around  8 p.m.

Hail up to golf ball sized in some cases, but mostly lots of quarter-sized hail, was enough to coat the ground in O'Fallon, Illinois, earlier Sunday. 

Most of you on the Missouri side saw something like this in the distance. Clouds that topped over 40,000 feet at times produced the classic "anvil" shape that we're familiar with thunderstorm development.

Most of the storms that rolled through Monday morning were just below the criteria of being severe, but put down plenty of heavy rain and produced a lot of lightning and thunder. Most of the rain should clear around 8 a.m. and then the rest of the day is hot and humid. There is the potential for a few more afternoon storms to pop-up with the humidity remaining high.
