Heat advisory issued for St. Louis metro this weekend

Friday afternoon Future Radar Friday afternoon Future Radar Storm threats today Lightning safety

Have a great weekend and happy Father's Day to all the dads out there keeping it real!

It turns hotter and more humid on Monday.

TONIGHT: Mostly clear and warm. Highs are expected to reach into the mid to upper 90s, with dew points near 70, making for an oppressive heat to kick off the work week. As a result, the coverage of afternoon storms will be much less - 20 percent for both Saturday and Sunday.

A Heat Advisory is in effect for most of Mid-Michigan for Father's Day. Despite the slightly drier air, temperatures will remain warm with mid to upper 80s at the beach and lower 90s inland through the weekend.

Thankfully we are looking at some good chances for several days next week, which will also bring us a nice break from the heat! The heat index will be over 100° with very little relief during the overnight hours. We'll continue with a westerly flow of wind which will drive the Gulf Coast sea breeze to the east, therefore expect the earliest storms near I-75 before they move towards I-95 by mid-afternoon.

TUESDAY: There will be a 40 percent chance of rain and thunderstorms.

For Saturday night, expect partly cloudy skies, with a low around 64.

Understanding the chance of rain in summer: How in the world can you apply a 10%, 30% or 50% chance of rain to what's really going to happen?

There's no way to pinpoint where a single storm will develop on any given day, so we use a combination of (1) confidence that storms will develop and (2) expected coverage in the forecast area.
