Line Of Strong/Severe Storms Tonight

Severe weather likely Monday night and Tuesday southeast of St. Louis

First Alert: A line of strong-to-severe storms likely Tuesday evening

Threats with these storms would be damaging winds, large hail, and an isolated tornado can not be ruled out. Our winds are out of the south ahead of an approaching cold front.

The state's southeast will see morning temperatures in the upper 30s and low 40s, according to the latest advisory.

Plan on monitoring the weather closely this evening and you can count on the 7 Stormteam to keep you updated on the potential for severe weather.


We will have a cold front track through Central Alabama. The cold front will take isolated type storms out to the west and congeal them into a line of storms for our area. Another round of storms move in in the afternoon to evening hours, which could be severe in nature. The greatest threat will be damaging winds and hail, although an isolated tornado can not be ruled out either. Wind will blow predominantly from the east at 8 to 13 miles per hour, with a shift to the south, late, to those who have that warm front pass north of you.

Closer to 5pm, the squall line with damaging winds will move in from southern IL. Once the initial line moves through we will see showers lingering through the sunrise time frame.

The showers behind the line of storms will be ending by 6 a.m. Wednesday with clearing developing during the rest of the morning. The cooler, drier air that sweeps in Wednesday will make it tough for most of the Valley to reach past the 50s for highs! "We had snowfall early this morning across a good part of our area, with some seeing upwards of 4" of snow overnight.
