Heat Advisory and Severe Weather Potential
Today will bring hot summer temperatures, with a strong possibility for heat index readings of 100+ degrees. Actual temps will likely reach the mid 90’s. The National Weather Service will issue a heat advisory for most of the STL metro area today at 12:00 p.m., which will last into the evening hours.
Due to the extreme heat and unstable atmosphere, there is a growing chance for strong to severe weather in the STL area this evening.
