Severe Weather Heading Toward St. Louis Metro

Severe thunderstorms, some tornadic, are moving East/Northeast toward the St. Louis Metro Area.  Several waves of severe weather will be taking place beginning about 3pm in Western parts of the city, spreading East/ Northeastward throughout the remainder of the late afternoon and into the evening rush hour.

The purple polygons on the above radar image show where Tornado Warnings are currently in effect just West of St. Louis.

If you are at work please be sure to check on the weather before heading home.  In most cases, it would be better to stay at your place of business rather than to venture out into gridlock if a tornado or other very severe storm moves through your area.

Very large hail, damaging winds, and tornadoes are all possible with this activity.
