ST. LOUIS — The rain ended early Thursday morning in the St. Louis area, but a spotty shower can't be ruled out.
Thursday, winds continue to be sustained at 20 to 30 miles per hour with gusts above 40 possible. A wind advisory ends at noon for our Illinois counties. A wind advisory will continue in our far eastern Illinois counties until 6 p.m.
There have been some power outages as the strong winds have been capable of knocking down a few branches onto power lines.
As the storm system exits our area Thursday, some afternoon sunshine will return. Gusty winds will begin to diminish later in the day. Colder air will filter into the area overnight Thursday into Friday morning.
An upper-level system may be able to spit out some rain and/or snow showers Friday, but moisture is limited. With temperatures above freezing, any wintry mix is not expected to cause travel problems.
