04 April 2018, 01:05 | Marta Robbins

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

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

"There is a small chance for a tornado and hail over 1" in diameter. A tornado warning was in effect until 5:15 p.m. While we do not now see a significant severe weather threat for the Friday/Saturday rain event, it's certainly something we will need to watch as the week progresses.

The system notifies locals with emergency information through phone calls, text messages, emails and social media. Additional storms may also fire in Kentucky. Strong wind gusts of 25 to 35 miles per hour are likely throughout the day. The cluster of storms will move closer to our area by later this afternoon, but some models show this cluster weakening.

This line of thunderstorms should push through our area between 6 p.m. and 11 p.m. on Tuesday evening, before moving out just after midnight.

Though the day will begin a bit on the chilly side, following the morning rain temperatures will climb to the 60's by late afternoon or early evening!

New York Yankees home opener, New York Mets game snowed out
The New York Yankees postpone their home opener against the Tampa Bay Rays amid a snowstorm Monday, according to team officials. The Rays will shift to ace Chris Archer in place of Austin Pruitt , who won Thursday's opener in relief.

Widespread frost is likely on Wednesday night, with low temperatures right around freezing.

By overnight, the stormy weather should be well east of Central Texas.

Low temperatures expected to fall into the low to mid-30s! When the front starts to work into northwest Alabama, that's where we could see the greatest instability and potential for stronger storms. The cooler, drier air that sweeps in Wednesday will make it tough for most of the Valley to reach past the 50s for highs!
