Some severe cells are possible from St. Louis northward to Springfield, Illinois until midnight tonight. The main threats from these storms are severe wind gusts over 60 miles per hour, and large hail is also possible. 

A Severe Thunderstorm Watch means conditions are favorable for severe thunderstorms in and close to the watch area. Persons in these areas should stay weather aware if threatening weather conditions move into your area. Stay with 5 On Your Side this evening, as we will be running our crawl with any warnings as they are issued and we will break into regularly scheduled programming as needed. 

Below is the future satellite and radar at 1 a.m. So, even after the severe thunderstorm watch ends, we are still expecting showers and storms to be in the area with the potential for frequent lightning and heavy rain.
